The Indian National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon will visit the island before the end of this month, the Indian High Commission in Colombo confirmed. However the Sri Lankan Ministry of External Affairs has yet to receive an official communication of his visit.

Unconfirmed sources claim that the visit is a follow up to the United Nations Human Rights Council Sessions in February where India decided to vote against Sri Lanka.

Menon previously served as the Indian Foreign Secretary, the Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan and in China and Israel as a diplomat. (DS)

    Sri Lanka government should make terrorits group same like LTTE or Maoist against India and this will help to future generation of Sri Lanka. India is not a genuine friend of us. India trained, given arms, ammunitions, shelltor and help monitoraly to EXLTTE also. This is well known secret also. India went against Sri Lanka during the UNHRC meeting in Genova ,Switzerland, India still fooling Sri Lanka. Thanks god EXLTTE killed Rajavi Gandhi.
