DUHOK – Extremists of the Islamic State group (ISIS) are harming Islam through their brutality and intolerance; However, “dialogue” with the group seems vital, the Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama said on Monday.
“Yes, we are of course looking at building a relationship (with ISIS). We have a very clear humanitarian vision. First, what we see is 10 million people. Ten million people under the control of the Islamic State group. We are interested in these 10 million people. What happens to them? What are their problems? This is what will guide us,” Daccord stressed.
