Dharamsala:Newly elected Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni thanked Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama for the message of affection by him on her appointment.

"I am honored by the message of affection that the Dalai Lama wanted to convey to me and the government. I take this opportunity to renew our feeling of friendship to him," she wrote to the Nobel Peace Laureate.

The Dalai Lama greeted Meloni on becoming the Prime Minister, Italy's first woman premier, saying women are more empathetic and sensitive to the feelings of others.
