India to provide relief to those affected in Sri Lankan conflict

External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Monday called up Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa, and assured him of providing relief to those affected by the tragic conflict between the Lankan Army and the Tamil Tigers.


New Delhi, May 18 : External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Monday called up Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse, and assured him of providing relief to those affected by the tragic conflict between the Lankan Army and the Tamil Tigers.

"In a telephone conversation with External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee earlier today, the President of Sri Lanka confirmed that armed resistance by the LTTE has come to an end and that LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran is dead," MEA official spokesperson Vishnu Prakash said in a statement.

The statement came after the Sri Lankan Army declared that armed resistance by the LTTE has come to an end and its leader Velupillai Prabhakaran is dead.

The statement further said that all communities in Sri Lanka, including the Tamils, could now feel at home and lead lives of dignity of their own free will.

"It is our view that as the conventional conflict in Sri Lanka comes to an end, this is the moment when the root causes of conflict in Sri Lanka can be addressed. This would include political steps towards the effective devolution of power within the Sri Lankan Constitution so that Sri Lankans of all communities, including the Tamils, can feel at home and lead lives of dignity of their own free will," the statement said.
