The US government's decision to delay a meeting with the Dalai Lama during the latter's visit to Washington in October angered—or at least disappointed—many activists.

Hindustan Times: Obama for talks between China, Dalai Lama
Times of India: Obama Urges China to talk to Dalai

New Zealand Herald: Key: No reason to meet Dalai Lama this time
Global Times: China dissatisfied with Dalai Lama's India visit
