India questions Cameron’s stand

India on Thursday questioned British Prime Minister David Cameron's style of addressing war crime allegations in Sri Lanka and averred that such style is counterproductive.

Cameron, who left Colombo after attending CHOGM, had set a fourmonth deadline for Sri Lanka to order an independent probe into alleged brutality against civilians or face an international UN-backed investigation.

 However, Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa shot back immediately, saying "people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones", adding that Sri Lanka would "take its own time" in probing alleged abuses. Government sources in Delhi dismissed Cameron's approach. "It is not our style to go and talk like Cameron did...this can be counter-productive.

We know what could be an effective approach and our interlocutors also know what India desires," a senior source said.

Claiming that India has not lost leverage in Sri Lanka after PM's decision to skip the CHOGM owing to domestic compulsions, the source said, "...The fact that external affairs minister went (there) is a sign of commitment to Sri Lanka... Just as Sri Lanka cannot be wished away, India cannot be wished away. " Meanwhile, sources clarified that Delhi did not have any  favourite in Maldives Presidential polls.(The Economic Times)

    It is non of India's business to question, it is matter between UK and SL

    Pratap Saturday, 23 November 2013 05:28 AM

    SL does not take India serious and keep up its promise of implementing the 13th amendment as agreed. The cunning President hoodwinked India on several occasions, he even promised 13++ amendment to have a federal structure to the Minorities in north and east. Armed conflict is over, now it is all democratic. The world community is watching, India can only question Britain to show its presence, but no one will take india serious because it has always faltered in its foreign policy which is completely flawed. Even after 4 years since LTTE is decimated, SL Govt hasn't implemented what it has actually promised....And Indian Govt does not have the spine to make its small Indian Neighbour to keep up its promise. India lacks spine because of its weak leadership.
