The Chinese Consul in Israel, Lu Chin, said on Wednesday that China requested the Foreign Ministry prevent the Dalai Lama's planned visit to Israel. Although he noted that sources promised that official state representatives would not meet with him, the consul said that was not enough. The Tibetan Buddhist leader was expected to meet with Labor Knesset candidate Avishay Braverman, although that visit was planned before Braverman joined politics, Israel Radio reported.
