Indian Foreign Affairs minister to visit Sri Lanka in September

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 25 August 2010, 13:45 GMT]
In response to the accusations raised by All India Anna Dravidia Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) parliamentarians against the Indian Government for having not given any help to the uprooted Tamils in Sri Lanka held in Sri Lanka Army (SLA) detention camps or any assistance to the resettled Tamils in Vanni in Indian Parliament Wednesday, Indian Foreign Affairs minister, S. M. Krishna, told the parliament he will be visiting Sri Lanka late September to hold talks with Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapaksa again on the issues raised.

Meanwhile, T. R. Balu, parliamentarian of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), a constituent of the Indian Congress party led government, claimed that the Indian government has indeed given necessary assistance to the uprooted Tamils and that they are completely resettled in their places in Vanni, inviting great hue and cry of the AIADMK members of parliament. The proceedings of the House was disrupted for some time, sources in New Delhi said.

Mr. Krishna further said that the Indian assistance to the Tamils in Vanni are supplied under the supervision of ICRC.

The agitated AIADMK parliamentarians demanded the Indian government to apply pressure on Sri Lanka government to allow UN officials to visit the resettled Tamils in Vanni.
