Without criticizing India directly for backing the US-initiated resolution against Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council, Russia has described the resolution as "politically motivated" and one that has ended up discrediting the Council itself.
 
The remark by Russian ambassador Alexander M Kadakin, ahead of the BRICS summit in New Delhi, has brought to the fore differences among the grouping which is seeking better coordination on major international issues.
 
"Sri Lanka was India's sovereign decision. The resolution was politically motivated and has discredited the UNHRC," said Kadakin.
 
"Why did it all of a sudden decide to take up a country-specific resolution? That is not how the UNHRC works," he added. Both Russia and China had voted against the resolution censuring Lanka for human rights violations.
 
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh last week wrote to Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa, saying that he himself had ensured that India dilute the wording of the draft to safeguard against any inclusion of monitoring mechanism.(TNN)

    India became No.01 enemy to Sri Lanka. Russia and China always with Sri Lanka to defend India.

    BRICS nations include India, Brazil, Russia, China & South Africa. Lets see what the other nations have to say to India. I wouldn't be surprised if Sri Lanka wasn't even on the discussion list.
