Sri Lanka has abandoned all efforts to solve ethnic issue – CPG

[TamilNet, Friday, 08 October 2010, 06:08 GMT]
The Jaffna district Committee for Peace and Goodwill (CPG) said that Sri Lanka government has abandoned all its efforts to find a solution for the ethnic issue and that the Indian government maintains silence over the issue, when the Indian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka, Mr. Ashok K. Kantha met the CPG Thursday at the Bishop House in Jaffna. India has forgotten the Indo-Sri Lanka Accord and the 13th Amendment in the context of the defeat of Liberation Tigers, CPG further said. The Indian High Commissioner in response to the accusation said that India continues to urge Sri Lanka government to propose a solution for the ethnic issue that can give hope for the Tamils, sources in Jaffna said.

Mr. Asok K. Kantha arrived in Jaffna Thursday as Indian Foreign Affairs Minister S. M. Krishna is scheduled to visit Sri Lanka soon.

Jaffna Bishop Rt. Rev. Thomas Saundaranayagam presided over the meeting at the Bishop House with Mr. Ashok K. Kantha Thursday.

The visiting Indian High Commissioner also participated in a ‘Tree planting’ event held by Jaffna district schools in Jaffna Thursday.
