Sri Lanka is determined to devote majority of resources in developing Tamil dominated areas in the emerald Island on social and infrastructural levels, an Indian news report claimed.

Home Affairs Minister W. D. J. Senevirathene, currently on a state visit to India stated this while addressing a news conference at Thiruvanthapuram over the weekend.

“I think India also must have noticed the steps that are being taken in order to improve the human rights situation in Sri Lanka. I think that if you get the opportunity of visiting the north and the east where the disturbances prevailed in our country, you will find the vast developments that have taken, not only in relation to the infrastructure, even in relation to their social developments of the people of those areas, their education, health facilities and various other community facilities are tremendously developed in those areas,” said Senevirathene.

Commenting on the issue of trade, he said that commerce between the two countries was strengthening with each passing day.

“India has become one of the major exporters to Sri Lanka. Indian goods are very much on increase now in Sri Lanka and last year we crossed the five billion dollars mark, as regard to the trade between the two countries. So, the trade between the two countries has been there for a long time, and day by day it is improving,” added Senevirathene.

Further he stated that it was important to boost bilateral ties.

“The strengthening of the intimacy, the strengthening of friendship between Sri Lankan and Kerala, must be taken up, and perpetuated further, that should be done. I think the association would be very easy between the two nations,” said Senevirathene. (ANI)

    It is one thing developing tamil areas and another to address the concerns of tamils in that area, which is not limited to development issues alone.

    Compare to other areas, that's true. Definitely you are not in Sri Lanka or you haven't see other areas.
