India disappointed us – Gotabaya
Posted in Local News
Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa said yesterday that the strong statement issued by India at the UN Council session raising accountability issues at war came both as a surprise and a big disappointment.
He said Sri Lanka had made available all the documents prepared in conjunction with international humanitarian agencies on accountability on various subjects pertaining to the war and that these agencies had cleared Sri Lanka.
“While Sri Lanka understands the domestic compulsions of New Delhi, we were expecting the Indian government to be fair by Sri Lanka as we had substantiated our claims with facts and figures,” he said

Surely this calls for retaliation in a strong way.
1. Take back all our oil tanks lent to IOC and invite China to have a base in Trinco, lend the oil tanks to them, come to our defence militarily against India if needed, wipe out all the Chinese loans to us for our infra-structure building so far, assist us with more infra-structure building and fast growth of our economy.
2. Seek Chinese assistance to arm our defence forces further and train them, arm our navy and airforce with modern ships and aircraft and radar for the defence of our country.
3. Seek also Russian assistance to search for oil and gas in the mannar basin and elsewhere and break off contracts issued to India.
4. Obtain oil and gas supplies from Iran through Pakistan and two fingers to US resolution against Iran.
Brilliant my dear Mr Dias, it is China who the other day, turned down a request for a loan to buy essential commodities.
The Chinese Premier’s Dept very politely said Chinese assistance will only for development projects at an interest rate higher than the market.
We should tackle the same in proper manner, without letting them know that we do make them away from us. So it required high level planning to draw a line between the two parties. If we start doing what Mr.Nicolas said it will become another issue for the world to talk.
Let’s no go for those, we should target it in different manner and in slow and but steady phase.
As we handle LTTE within short span of time with full force with maximum tack ticks this is a peanut for us in the path ahead.
