“Sri Lanka’s victory over terrorism helped ensure the security of India too. “Not only that Sri Lankans have started to live in normalcy without fear but a major national security goal of India was also achieved as a collateral gain by Sri Lanka’s victory over the LTTE,” he said.
Swamy added that reconciliation will go a long way if Tamils as a bloc do not vote against Sinhala candidates at the forthcoming elections –
“We will not accept any inquiry against Sri Lanka from any quarter..” No genocide has taken place in Sri Lanka,” Dr. Swamy emphasized.
He was addressing the delegates at the Defence Seminar 2014 in Colombo yesterday.The Janatha Party leader said that India’s foreign policy will be formulated
with national interests in mind. India will always place its own national interest above the interests of Provincial governments. Swamy said that issue in Sri Lanka is not an ethnic issue but purely an issue related to linguistics.
Well..hopes to be conitiued and the same words as in the past have been drafted: ‘ “The prime minister stressed the need for a political solution that addresses the aspirations of the Tamil community for equality, dignity, justice and self respect within the framework of a united Sri Lanka,” an official statement said. Modi urged “all stakeholders in Sri Lanka to engage constructively, in a spirit of partnership and mutual accommodation, towards finding a political solution”.This should be built “upon the 13th amendment of the Sri Lankan constitution”, he said, referring the India-backed amendment of the 1980s which called for devolving autonomous powers to the Tamils.”. Because this is what Mr.Subramaniyam Swamy had spoken reportedly in Colombo on 20-08-2014: “‘LANKA’S VICTORY, OUR SECURITY’ – Dr. Subramanian Swamy – Thursday, August 21, 2014 -(All day) -Chairman
