[TamilNet, Sunday, 25 April 2010, 16:12 GMT]
Sri Lanka's President Mahinda Rajapakse will brief the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the measures taken by Sri Lanka government to improve the conditions following the end of the three decade old war. The briefing would take place during the sidelines of SAARC summit scheduled to be held in Thimpu, capital of Bhutan this week, according to a statement by the Sri Lanka’s new Foreign Minister G.L.Peiris to Colombo media Sunday.
“I do not want to speculate on what topics the discussion between the two leaders would take place,” Mr. Peiris further said.
He added the government would gradually ease the security measures now in force.
But the relaxation in this regard would take place not because of external pressure, Peiris added.
