Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama has said he realises that he may be the last to hold the title.
But he told the BBC it would be better that the centuries-old tradition ceased "at the time of a popular Dalai Lama".
The Dalai Lama suggested the UK had taken a soft line with China over Hong Kong's recent student-led pro-democracy protests for financial reasons.
He also said the international community needed to do more to encourage democracy in China.
"China very much wants to join the mainstream world economy," he said.
"They should be welcome, but at the same time the free world has a moral responsibility to bring China into mainstream democracy - for China's own interests."
