Replying to a question on Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe's remarks on offering more autonomy to Tamils in Sri Lanka, India’s Union Minister of Urban Development Venkaiah Naidu said it was a 'serious' statement and the NDA Government had taken note of it.
"It is a very serious statement and we have taken note of it. We have age old relationship with Sri Lanka and we want to continue our relationship", he said.
After the victory of Maithripala Sirisena in the recent Presidential polls, Wickramasinghe indicated that the new Sri Lankan government would offer more autonomy to Tamils. (Outlook India)
