ROCHESTER, Minn., April 25 (UPI) -- The Dalai Lama told CNN host Piers Morgan during an interview in Minnesota he loves former President George W. Bush "as a human being."

The Tibetan leader, who spoke to Morgan in Rochester following his annual physical, said he did not agree with all of Bush's policies, but he loves him "as a human being," CNN reported Wednesday.

"Of course as individual, individual person. I love President Bush," the Dalai Lama said in the interview, which is set to air during Wednesday night's broadcast of "Piers Morgan Tonight."

"As a human being. Not as president of America. Sometimes his policy may not be very, very successful. But as a person, as a human being, very nice person. I love him," the spiritual leader said. "After he sort of start the Iraq sort of crisis then my other occasion meeting with him, I expressed to him, I love you, but your policies concerned, I have some reservations. I told him."
