Allow SL to find their own solution-South Africa

2014-03-04 17:38:24

South Africa today said that international community must allow Sri Lanka to find their own solution to their own problem.

“It is important that we allow Sri Lankans to find each other, and out of this find solutions that are durable for their country,” South African Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Nkoana Mashabane said addressing the 25th session of the UN Human Rights in Geneva on Tuesday.

Stating that the Human Rights Council has been seized with the issue of Sri Lanka for a while she also said, “We as South Africans also had to find each other and consequently find our own solution to our own problem. This is our wish for the people of Sri Lanka.”

    Thank you South Africa for standing up for justice... That is a good lesson for most of the other spineless countries, especially, India.

    In fact we do not have any problems to find solutions. Problem is with SOME OF THE Tamils and their partners of crime, namely, UN, US, UK and EU wanted to continue with their killing machine, which we put a full stop - that's it. If we give them to smuggle lethal arms and carry on their marauding adventure and their crime partners to bully us as silly goats kneel down and living - all this hullabaloo wouldn't have happened, As everyone knows Tamils are living in width and breadth of the country - what's the specialty of North Tamils? Are they Brahmins?

    Minorities don't have such a problem. Only Tamil Diaspora and LTTE sympathizers have such thing. Majority of Tamils live with Sinhalese very peacefully,

    Well said. It is only mother who knows what labour pain is. Not nurses and attendants like USA and UK who are selfish and greedy for resources that change their stance to suit their strategic interests. In the process become BULLIES. via DM iPad app

    Ms Mashbang, FYI we are into the 5year since the LTTE was wiped out by this regime. They had the best opportunity under President Mahinda Rajapakese to do all it takes to be in power by only doing the basics; GOOD GOVERNESS. But unfortunately for Sri Lanka, GREED FOR WEALTH blinded them & in the run of play THE RULE OF LAW became non-existence. .
