Indian High Commissioner visits Jaffna

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 23 November 2010, 15:18 GMT]
The Indian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Mr. Asok K. Kantha is on a sudden visit to Jaffna where he is engaged in preparations to receive Indian Minister of External Affairs Mr. S. M. Krishna who is expected to visit Jaffna peninsula on 27 Saturday, sources in Jaffna said. The Indian minister will be taking part in the event of resettling families in the outskirt villages of the Sri Lanka Army (SLZ) High Security Zone (HSZ) in Valikaamam North that is to be presided by Sri Lanka Minister, Basil Rajapaksa, the sources added. Mr. S. M. Krishna will be opening an office of the Indian High Commission to Sri Lanka in Jaffna during his visit.

Mr. Asok K. Kantha is meeting business entrepreneurs in Jaffna including representatives of Jaffna Traders Association, Federation of Industries and other interested parties Monday night and Tuesday with the view of extending Indian investment in the peninsula.

Meanwhile, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) circles have announced that they will attend the functions participated by Mr. S. M. Krishna and that they look forward to an opportunity to hold talks with him during his stay in Jaffna.

However, the High Commissioner who is presently in Jaffna shows more interest in the Indian investment possibilities in Jaffna than attending to TNA requests, the sources in Jaffna said.
