US President Barack Obama has met the Dalai Lama in private and told him he encourages dialogue with China, the White House has said.

The two met in Washington despite Chinese objections.

The pair, who has met several times before, talked behind closed doors in the White House Map Room.

China has denounced meetings between foreign leaders and the exiled Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader, whom the country considers a separatist while a Chinese foreign ministry spokesman condemned Wednesday's meeting.

Obama encouraged direct dialogue between the Dalai Lama and China, the White House has told to an International media agency.
