Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama shares his vision of NATO headquarters being relocated to Moscow

"I believe in Russia's bright future. Russia, indeed, might become a real bridge between East and West," the Dalai Lama said in an interview with the Russian newspaper Kommersant in New Delhi after his first-ever joint conference with leading Russian neuroscientists and philosophers, adding that "Russians are a great nation."

 "I look at America and I hear a lot of criticism directed at the White House. Many who were in favour of Donald Trump are now against him. On the other hand, looking at Russia, I see many are advocating the fight against corruption, I think it was impossible during Stalin's time. Anyway, the changes will come, maybe not so fast as some would like. I believe in the great future of Russia, which is a country that could become a bridge between the East and the West," he said. 

"You know," continued the Dalai Lama, "my dream is that NATO headquarters be relocated to Moscow."
"According to the Russian mentality, NATO is perceived as the symbol of a hostile force. If the headquarters of the Alliance were shifted to Moscow, it could allay whatever misapprehensions and evoke feelings that from then on, Russians and Americans are together! However, now I am afraid that I won't be allowed into the US after such a suggestion," he said.
I am sure that we should consider world processes from the point of view of the degree of personality development. That is, at the human level, and not at the level of political leaders,” he continued.
According to the Dalai Lama, leaders are often selfish and driven by a desire to stay in power and many other motives.
“Political leaders are not eternal, they are trying and will try to control everything. But they are mortals!” he concluded.
