India disappointed us – Gotabaya

Gotabhaya Rajapaksa

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
