Colombo answers Indian political visit by simultaneously inviting Pak defence visit

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 10 April 2013, 12:00 GMT]
While representatives of a section of Indian political parties were on a fact finding mission to the island, meeting various Tamil political, civil society, chamber of commerce and former civil members in Jaffna on Tuesday and Wednesday under the aegis of the Indian High Commission and the Indian Consulate in Jaffna, the SL government in Colombo is engaging with a high level Pakistani Defence delegation comprising 19 members who are on a one-week visit to the island. The visit by Pakistani defence delegation follows the visit of the Chinese Deputy Minister of Intelligence last week.

The Pakistani delegation visiting Colombo was ‘concentrating’ on gaining awareness on Sri Lanka’s ‘defence, development, domestic and foreign policy matters’, reports in Colombo said.

The Pakistani delegation is meeting the SL Defence Secretary and presidential sibling Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, all the commanders of the three armed forces and the governor of the Central Bank, the reports further said.

The Pakistani defence delegation was also scheduled to visit the North, informed sources in Colombo said.

Last week, the Chinese intelligence minister visited Jaffna and Trincomalee in the company of the occupying Sinhala military.

The SL State in Colombo, as usual, is counting on its underhand abilities in prompting bureaucrats in New Delhi and sections of media in India, to sustain the line of the New Delhi Establishment to remain hostile to the interests and existence of the nation of Eezham Tamils, informed sources in Colombo said.

In the meantime, the Tamil delegates in Jaffna were unanimous in explaining to the delegation of Indian political party representatives that India talking about 13th Amendment or about 13 plus, would not help Eezham Tamils under the unitary character of the Sri Lankan constitution, sources in Jaffna said.

Except a few individuals of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), planted or prodded by the very powers that directed the genocidal war and continue to facilitate the structural genocide against the nation of Eezham Tamils, the grassroots sections of the Tamil polity remain sharp in comprehending the machinations and in articulating for the righteous aspirations of Eezham Tamils, young generation politicians told TamilNet.
