The mayor of Paris, where the Olympic torch relay last week turned to chaos amid pro-Tibet protests, said on Wednesday he would ask the city council to make the Dalai Lama an honorary citizen of the city.
The decision will "pay tribute to a champion of peace, a tireless advocate of dialogue between people," said Bertrand Delanoe.
"aris also wants to show its support for the people of Tibet who are defending their most basic right to dignity, freedom and simply life," said the mayor in a statement.
The city council will on Monday take up the proposal on the Dalai Lama, Tibet's spiritual leader who lives in exile in India where he fled after a failed 1959 uprising against Chinese rule of his Himalayan land.
The Dalai Lama is to visit France in August when China hosts the Olympic Games that have drawn much controversy from human rights advocates concerned by a recent crackdown in Tibet.
The Olympic torch relay through Paris last week descended into chaos after protesters and pro-Tibet demonstrators took to the streets to condemn Beijing's rights records.
France and other western governments have called on Beijing to enter into dialogue with the Dalai Lama on Tibet.

Looks like he is going to do a lap of honour around the world to celebrate his reviving status.  Maybe he might get to meet the Pope as he is also gracing places far away with his presence and they could swop some stories about fun things to do with young children.

Imagine France must be so proud of it's possible newest citizen and his highly educated peaceful followers.

Wouldn't it be nice if the government of Paris.  
The same entity that were involved with the Treaty of Versailles which went on to cause WWII.  
The second 20th century defeat of the arrogant French.
Wouldn't it be nice if they held one minutes silence in respect for the loss of innocent life in Tibet.  
The life which as pointed out was selected and targeted rather than sporadic.
If they want to respect peace then they should respect the peaceful.
Not the deceitful.
