The TNA tweeted saying it welcomed Modi calling on Sri Lanka to address the aspirations of the Tamil people.
“We welcome PM Modi calling on Sri Lanka to address the aspirations of the Tamil people for equality, justice, peace and respect within a united SL including by carrying forward the process of reconciliation with implementation of constitutional provisions,” the TNA tweeted.
Modi told Sri Lankan Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday that implementation of the 13th Amendment to the Sri Lankan Constitution is essential for carrying forward the process of peace and reconciliation.
Modi called on the new Government in Sri Lanka to work towards realizing the expectations of Tamils for equality, justice, peace and dignity within a united Sri Lanka by achieving reconciliation nurtured by implementation of the Constitutional provisions.
