"I think any work for the promotion of peace and eventually denuclearize, as I always say, committed (sic)," the Dalai Lama told journalists.

"So if that goes seriously, most welcome. If it is just a political game, then I don't know," he said and started giggling.

The Dalai Lama's comments followed the meeting of US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. They signed a document in which the American president pledged "security guarantees" for Pyongyang, and the Korean confirmed his commitment on complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
