The Dalai Lama, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, said Europe was "morally responsible" to help refugees who are facing danger in their native countries, but that their stay in Europe should be a temporary one.

While the Buddhist spiritual leader from Tibet acknowledged Europe had a responsibility to help refugees, he also emphasized that they must also do their part, according to the U.K.'s The Sun.

"Receive them, help them, educate them... but ultimately they should develop their own country", said the 83-year-old Tibetan.

"I think Europe belongs to the Europeans", he added, stressing that countries like Germany and Sweden should make clear that refugees must "return to their homelands and rebuild them".

It's not the first time the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize victor has advocated for refugees and migrants to return home to their native countries. "Germany is Germany. There are so many that in practice it becomes hard".

"From a moral point of view, too, I think that the refugees should only be admitted temporarily".

France 24 reports that the Dalai Lama made his comments "three days after the far-right populist party Sweden Democrats made gains in the country's general election on Sunday".

"He has outrageous hair and a small mouth", he said, complete with hand gesture and some sort of fish impression that followed.

When asked about how he feels about Kim Kardashian having around four times more, he said: "If she has more followers, good, no problem".

Well, he's confident, that much is for sure.
