Dharamshala: As Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao prepares to leave on a European trip, which includes a visit to Germany, a public opinion survey has found that His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the leading international figure that the German people admire the most.

A survey by the German polling institute Forsa for the Deutsche Welle TV, which was released on 6 September 2006, has found that 61 percent of Germans rated His Holiness the Dalai Lama as an international model. UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan came second with 56 percent and Pope Benedict secured 51 per cent.

In 2002, a poll by the German magazine Geo Wissen placed His Holiness the Dalai Lama in the top of the list among personalities the German people admired.
