UK, USA, assuming Policeman role in Sri Lankan affairs - Wimal Weerawanse

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 09 May 2007, 01:05 GMT]
"Britain and the USA have assumed the role of policemen in the affairs of Sri Lanka," the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) propaganda secretary, Wimal Weerawanse accused at an adjournment debate in Sri Lanka parliament Tuesday, parliamentary sources in Colombo said.

"Britain has no right to intervene in the ethnic issue in Sri Lanka and the British Parliament is acting favourably to Tigers," Weerawanse added, stating the British parliament had conducted a debate showing partiality towards the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

Weerawanse condemned decisions by the British parliament's All Party Committee to invite LTTE political head Mr. S.P. Tamilchelvan to address the house, its intention to hold a tri-party conference inviting Sri Lanka, LTTE, and Norway, and its decision to visit Killinochchi. A visit to Kilinochchi will infringe Sri Lankan sovereignty, Weerawansa said.

In reaction to Britain and the USA's stances towards Sri Lanka's human rights record, Weerawansa said, "Britain and the USA are responsible for the gross human rights violation in Iraq."

Deputy ministers, Mahinthananda Aluthgame, Hussein Baila and ruling party MP, Vijayadasa Rajapakse also expressed their strong condemnation against Britain intervening in Sri Lanka's ethnic issue.
