Apr 20, 2012

Opposition and UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe had informed the visiting Indian Parliamentary delegation that his party was ready to help the government find a political solution to the national issue. He had stressed that UNP had taken this stance as Sri Lanka could no longer afford to delay its resolution. Mr. Wickremesinghe told journalists that he had also said that a political solution should be based on the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission's (LLRC) recommendations.

He had said that the opposition parties should also participate in the Parliamentary Select Committee that is to be appointed to seek a political solution, and that the government should enable them to do so.

Meanwhile, Sushma Swaraj, who heads the Indian delegation, said that India would not do anything that would jeopardise Sri Lanka's territorial integrity

Several senior UNP MPS, including General Secretary Tissa Attanayake, Senior Vice President Lakshman Kiriella, Wijedasa Rajapaksha, T. M. Swarynathan and R. Yogarajan; and UNP Chairman Jayawickrama Perera also participated in the discussion.

The Indian delegation had also spoken of their visit to Menik Farm where some IDPs still remain.
