Pretoria: Dalai Lama can visit anytime

South Africa’s new International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane said on Thursday that the Dalai Lama could now visit the country whenever he wants. She said she wanted to clarify a previous statement that no visa would be issued between now and the World Cup.

“The Dalai Lama is more than free, like any other citizen of the globe, who would want to visit our country,” she told journalists. She also said the new government believes that South Africa’s strong and friendly relations with China should be strengthened further.
