Kerry implies allowing time for genocidal Colombo

[TamilNet, Saturday, 02 May 2015, 16:37 GMT]
"Peace has come but true reconciliation will take time," said the visiting US Secretary of State John Kerry in Colombo, praising the “enormous progress Sri Lanka has made in just a few months”, AFP reported on Saturday. By declaring so at a time when the Colombo regime and its military are systematically involved in the structural genocide of the nation of Eezham Tamils in the island, the US Secretary of State implies giving more time and space for the regime in Colombo so that the genocide will be complete and there will be no question of reconciliation, commented Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island.

The approach of John Kerry also signals that there wouldn't be no real pursuance in international level investigations on the war crimes and genocide in the island.

Meanwhile, a Reuter report said that Mr Kerry was urging the new government to work with the UN to ensure an investigation into war crimes meeting international standards.

However, this implies domestic investigation hoodwink and not international investigations, the Tamil activists further said.

Kerry will be meeting Tamil National Alliance Parliamentary Group Leader R. Sampanthan on Sunday.

The international dimensions of the war in the island that ended in the genocide of Eezham Tamils were designed by the US administration of George W. Bush and were continued by the Obama administration.
