India will support Sri Lanka at the United Nations Human Rights Council. This news was given by Secretary Jayanath Colombage just days before when a new resolution on the island nation’s rights will be voted by the member countries. Colombo has also reached out to member countries during past weeks pitching for Sri Lanka’s post-war realities that the U.N resolutions address. Now All eyes are on India because of its own dispute with Colombo.
Indra Mani Pandey who is the Permanent Representative of India Ambassador stated that India’s consistent position is resting on two pillars of support to Sri Lanka’s unity and territorial integrity and equality, justice, peace, and dignity for Tamil aspirations.
Giving concern to India’s geopolitical and support for Tamil in the island nation, it is to be seen how New Delhi will take up the vote scheduled on March 22.
