WASHINGTON, Feb 18 (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama
and the Dalai Lama discussed the need to promote peace,
humanitarian values and religious harmony, the exiled Tibetan
spiritual leader said on Thursday.

Obama's meeting with the Dalai Lama at White House prompted
a warning from China that Sino-U.S. ties could be damaged.

The talks were closed to the press but afterward, the Dalai
Lama told reporters he had expressed to Obama his admiration
for the United States as a "champion of democracy, freedom,
human values" and creativity.
