Sri Lanka: TNA says commitments given by govt to India, international community on political solution for Tamils must be honoured

Tamil National Alliance (TNA) today noted that commitments given by the Sri Lankan government to India and the international community on a political solution for the Tamils must be honoured.

TNA leader R. Sampanthan, speaking in Parliament today said those commitments were not met but cannot be reneged upon.

He said the military defeat of the LTTE was possible as a result of the assistance provided by India and the international community as  both India and Sri Lanka saw the LTTE as an impediment to reaching a negotiated, reasonable political solution in Sri Lanka.

The Tamil leader said that the military defeat of the LTTE in 2009 was seen as a precursor to a reasonable political solution.

Mr. Sampanthan said that failure to honour the commitments would mean the then Sri Lankan Government used the international community to defeat the LTTE.

Calling on the current government to ensure a political solution for the Tamils within a united and undivided Sri Lanka, the TNA leader said that if President Gotabaya Rajapaksa works towards that goal,  he will have the support of the TNA.
