Tamil message goes contrary to realpolitik of world powers: Premachandran

[TamilNet, Sunday, 17 November 2019, 13:29 GMT]
Tamil people have cast their votes indicating their sharp opposition to génocidaire Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, who is the SL president-elect. The voting pattern of Tamils must be interpreted as a message to the South as well as to the international community, said EPRLF Leader Suresh Premachandran in a comment to TamilNet on Sunday. However, the USA and India are preoccupied with the thought of how best they could engage with the new SL President, because they consider China as having established deeper inroads into the island through trade, infrastructure-development and the 99-year lease of Hambantota harbour in the South, he said. Suresh Premachandran was implying that the powers that embrace the new president must be regarded as accountable for continued injustices against the Eezham Tamils in the island.

Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has gone on record indicating that he would be withdrawing from the UNHRC resolution 30/1, which his predecessors opted to co-sponsor with the USA.

However, US State Department diplomats who engaged with Tamil politicians before the elections were saying that “the U.S. is firmly committed to supporting Sri Lanka’s transitional justice process under the auspices of UNHRC resolution 30/1.”

Eezham Tamils will be watching the actions of the US Department of Defense, which chose to have a close relationship with génocidaire Gotabhaya Rajapaksa during the times of genocidal war against them.
