The Dalai Lama has claimed that Europe is Europe for & # 39; and that the continent & # 39; Muslim or African & # 39; if migrants are not sent back to their home country.
The Buddhist spiritual leader, who has been a refugee in India since 1959, said that only a limited number of & # 39; migrants may remain.
During an interview with the BBC, the Dalai Lama added that refugees who have fled to Europe must be given skills before they are returned.
He said that Europe was obliged to take those who needed help, but in the end they had to be sent back to their home country.
The 83-year-old said: & # 39; European countries should take these refugees and provide them with education and training, and the goal is to return to their own country with certain skills. & # 39;
The Dalai Lama said that Europe should receive refugees and provide them with training, but then send them back to their home countries to prevent the continent from becoming Muslim or African & # 39; is becoming

When asked what should happen to those who want to stay in their adopted countries, he replied: "A limited number are OK, but the whole of Europe will (eventually) become a Muslim country, an African country – impossible."
It is not the first time that the monk has made such comments. In a speech last year in Malmo, Sweden, the Tibetan Buddhist said that refugees would return to help rebuild their own countries.
He said: & # 39; Receive them (migrants), help them, teach them, but ultimately they have to develop their own country. I think Europe belongs to the Europeans. & # 39;
The Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people, went on to say that he admired the European Union as a method to avoid global conflicts.
Last year's EU figures state that around 4.4 percent of the 512 million inhabitants of the block are non-EU citizens.
According to statistics, 2.4 million migrants entered the EU from non-EU countries in 2017. Around 70 million refugees were assumed worldwide.

When asked about President Donald Trump, he replied that his time at the White House was lacking & # 39; moral principle & # 39; and that is his first policy in America & # 39; wrong & # 39; used to be.
The Buddhist monk has made India his home since he fled the capital Lhasa during the Tibetan uprising in 1959.
He established a government-in-exile in Dharamsala in northern India and launched a campaign to reclaim Tibet from China, which gradually evolved into a call for greater autonomy – known as the so-called & # 39; middle way & # 39; -approach.
India, which granted him asylum in 1959, supported the Tibetan leader, but the government has recently maintained a distance, citing diplomatic sensitivities.
In 2015, he said that if he were succeeded by a female Dalai Lama, she should be attractive, even though he had declared himself a feminist.
He said to the BBC again while he laughed: & # 39; If a female Dalai Lama comes, she should be more attractive. & # 39;
On International Women's Day this March in March, he called for more women to take a leading role rather than men being celebrated for killing their opponents.
He posted: & # 39; Women have been shown to be more sensitive to the suffering of others, while fighters who are celebrated for killing their opponents are almost always men.
