India for political solution in Sri Lanka

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: Following the Sri Lankan army’s capture of Kilinochchi, administrative and political headquarters of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, India has asked Colombo not to lose sight of a political solution.

“There are several aspects to the Sri Lanka problem. No one solution is sufficient to solve the problem. Military solution alone won’t work, no matter how the military situation fluctuates,” Foreign Secretary Shiv Shankar Menon said here on Monday. “Until there is a political understanding within the framework of a united Sri Lanka, we can’t speak of a political solution.” Humanitarian crises were one direct result of the military conflict and the absence of a political solution. “We have tried to get help to the civilian population and will continue to work with all those to help to civilians caught in the zone of conflict,” Mr. Menon said.
