LTTE urges China to consider Tamils plight at UN

[TamilNet, Friday, 20 March 2009, 07:31 GMT]
Political Head of the Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam (LTTE), B. Nadesan, on Friday urged Chinese government to allow Tamils plight to be discussed at the UN Security Council for a second time. "The Sri Lankan state is not only denying the Tamil sovereignty, but it is waging a genocidal war against them of catastrophic dimensions," said Mr. Nadesan adding that Colombo was engaged in a propaganda campaign saying that the conflict is an internal matter.

"We urge China, Russia and all the powers of the world not to ignore the plight of the civilians who face a genocidal war by the Sri Lankan state," he said when contacted by TamilNet following reports that China was not in favour of a second UN Security Council meeting on Sri Lanka.

Earlier, there were reports of Russia not willing to discuss the issue in the Security Council. The UN Security Council later had a briefing.

"Denying medicines, humanitarian supplies and the deliberate, inhuman targeting of civilians constitute serious war crimes and crimes against humanity on the part of the Sri Lankan state," Nadesan said.

More than 70 million Tamils of the region and the Tamil diaspora share a deep concern about the plight of their beleaguered brethren, he pointed out and urged China to discuss the plight of the Tamil people at the UN.

The LTTE's representatives were willing to explain the plight of the Tamils to the Chinese authorities, he further said.
