India invites Ranil for talks
Two weeks after Sri Lanka’s External Affairs Minister G.L. Peiris visited that country, India had invited Leader of the main Opposition United National Party (UNP) Ranil Wickremesinghe for talks on the situation that had arisen in the wake of the release of the United Nations Experts’ Panel report, party sources said yesterday.
They said Mr. Wickremesinghe was to leave for New Delhi yesterday and would hold talks with Indian leaders including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna.
However, sources said he would not meet newly elected Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Jeyaram during this visit.
Shortly after her sweeping victory in Tamil Nadu, Mr. Wickremesinghe contacted Ms. Jeyaram and conveyed his good wishes. They agreed to meet on a suitable date.
After the release of UN Panel report described by the government as the ‘Darusman Report, the UNP appointed a committee headed by veteran Civil Servant Bradman Weerakoon to study it and recommend how the party should respond to it.
Though the committee report has been submitted to the UNP hierarchy, it is not yet in the public domain.
Prof. Peiris visited India on May 16 to brief the Indian leaders on the UN Advisory Panel Report which called for an investigation into human rights allegations during the final stages of the war. Subsequent to this visit, there was a joint statement in which India asked Sri Lanka to probe alleged human rights violations. India had also stressed the need to evolve a political solution based on the 13th Amendment plus and expedite the implementation of various projects being funded by India. These projects include the development of the Kankasanthurai Harbour, the Palali Airbase and the Sampur Coal Power Project.
After the visit to India, Prof. Peiris visit China and held talks with Chinese leaders in Beijing.

This Darusman Report is not a ‘UN Panel Report’. It is a private UNSG appointed advisory panel report. The UNSG had no authority from UNSC and UNGA or UNHRC to produce such report at costs to UNO. Hence, he sould be castigated by the UNSG and UNGA for such unilateral action at UNO costs. The so-called panel of experts are no experts at all. The only credit they of expertise is being totally biased against SL in favour of LTTE, a banned terrorist organisation, which is now defunct. UNSG acted at behest of imperial West to gain its support for a second term in office for him.
The Central Govt of India wants big mama Jayalalitha’s support for it to carry on functioning. Let us send the Indian government of Manmohan Singh and the Italian woman, Sonia Gandhi, a clear message that SL is not their colony nor would like to be treated as their colony. The govt of SL should threaten to cut-off trade links with India for despicable political interference. Indian govt is engaged in fishing in troubled waters, to please their neo-colonialist masters in imperial West, for vested interests.
Isn’t it high time India focus on its own internal plight of daily sabotage threats from several militant groups within India fighting for autonomy?
Mooth eekka monawa kathakarandada! Unuth “pissu pooso” wei mooth ekka katha karala!
India continues to make big blunders; the blunders have intensified after Karnanidhi was routed in Tamil Nadu.
Ranil W is a toothless leader of the opposition. He has not only been unable to rally the voters and hardcore party supporters, he has failed miserably in uniting his own party.
The man simply lacks vision; unfortunately others who claim leadership in his party are blind and incapable too.
The UNP is a severe let down for the people of Sri Lanka; its effectiveness and lack of strategy or a plan for the future has assisted the people in power to neglect the massess in the democratic equation.
Ranil W’s only leadership aspiration is to lay his head on the comfy pillows in the Janadhipathi Mandiraya even for one night. If ever the goofer becomes the President, the nation will simply disintegrate.
Sad to see India relying on such a wimp for consultation. I am sure he will bag the blue brothers and then, when he returns he will suck upto them to ensure his survival.
India has no business whatsoever in the SF affair. The irrelevant statements he makes in the Courts and outside the Court premises demonstrates a character which threatens democracy. The person is suffering from a superiority complex and if let loose, he is definitely a threat. Also, he as the commander of the forces that fought the genocidal war, is responsible for the allegations contained in the Darusman report. It is best he be handed over to the international authorities for investigations. His hue and cry that political and civil leaders were corrupt during the genocidal war will not get him anywhere. If he genuinely thinks the war was fought for corrupt purposes and instructions were being relayed over his head to the commanders on site, he had the option to quit his role at that time.
SF, as the leader of the genocidal war, has the reponsibility to defend the allegations. Simply claiming corrupt activity by senior public servants is totally inadequate.
India has blundered many a time in its foregn policy; they nurtured the LTT at one point and air-dropped parippu packets to establish regional domination credentials; they failed to quell the tamil rebellion through direct intervention (IPKF) and twisted the arms of the almighty JRJ for a constitutional amendment that is not worth even the value of the paper on which it is written.
Now they want to talk to a goofer !!!!
India might wants some gifts of Bracelets, Chains, TVs, CD players..etc.. That’s why…!
But india doesn’t know that he has no even a bicycle chain..!
And ranil will go to meet jayalalitha to get advices about how to come to power again as she did…!
But it’s better if he get advice from church to get advice to go to heaven..!
India is our enemy and remains our enemy. Indira Gandhi created the terrorist organisation LTTE in retaliation against JR after falling out with him. India trained, funded, armed and continually supported LTTE in its armed conflict and terrorism for eelam. It continued its support to LTTE by threatening SL when VP and LTTE leaders were surrounded in Vadamarachchi and about to be eliminated. JR govt succumbed to these threats and released VP and leaders to wage 20 years more of terrorism, to inflict the scourge of economic disaster. India owes us a huge obligation and compensation for this support and nurturing of LTTE for 30 years and the economic loss in consequence.
The final war was not a genocidal war as JS and diaspora LTTE claimed. It is a War of Liberation to save the 300000 plus Tamil civilians held hostage by VP and the LTTE leadership to save their bacon, to flee with the help of imperial West. It was the biggest hostage rescue mission in the world. Those who died did so as a result of the suicide bombing and murder of their own people by the LTTE as the Tamil civilians fled to their rescuers, the SL army. No heavy weapons were used on the orders of Hon President to minimise civilian casualties, what the Americans call ‘co-lateral damage’.
Contrast this with what is happening in Libya today. The evil forces of the imperial West, on the pretext of ‘liberating’ the rebel ragamuffin ‘army’ and the civilians have night after night bombarded the territory held by Gaddafi forces with terrible salvos of cruise missiles and bunker bombs. They have caused heavy civilian casualties. This wicked genocide is glossed over by the imperial West through PR job through their media. Same civilian casualties are happening day after day in Afghanistan. UNSG is silent. No ‘expert’ panels by him to investigate and condemn and stop this continued genocides by the imperial West, as he is their puppet.
Syria and Iran are now under threat from imperial West and their firepower. This is all to grab their oil to prevent the economies of the West from grinding to a halt. They are misusing their terrible firepower to subjugate the small nations to their will power to grab their natural resources, such as oil. The imperial British did the same in 19th century with their superior maritime and military strength. The imperial West have combined their military strength now in neo-colonialism.
I hope Hon President of SL does not succumb to colonial ambitions and warnings by evil India. I hope he sever trade links with India, starting with stopping import of medical supplies, mostly inferior in quality and expired, which are being dumped in SL at a huge profit to India. This is another inimical act by India. Why does SL continue to tolerate this evil act of India? Isn’t it time we import quality medical supplies from China as the West does?
We should now establish even stronger defence and trade links with China and Russia to face the formidable threats of India and imperial West, who emboldened by their exploits in the Middle East will no doubt invade SL with India to establish by force an eelam State for the terrorist diaspora LTTE and the TNA.
pissuda Oi muu jayalalitha langata yana ekak naha , jayalalithage body gaurdta kittu karai.
The Congress led corrupt regime in New Delhi is on its last legs. Wikileak revealations demonstrate the extent of corruption in New Delhi.
There’s evidence leaders from the adjoining failed island state rushed to New Delhi carrying brief cases filled with Greenbacks to influence policy at the height of the genocidal war.
Now they are attempting a “divide and rule” tactic by inviting the powerless wimpy goofer for talks.
It’s only a Shiv Sena led Government that can bring about emanicpation in India.
uuta pissu double nisa thamai jaya akkawa meet wenne….!
Habei putho muu ara jaffna meeting ekedi wage ehe gihin “po da… Po da..” kiyaida dannaaa…?
Muu pons bawa jaya akka dannawa ethine…!
I’d like 2 kindly remind all commentators including me, that to make comments as brief as possible but not as long as possible & not longer than the articles.
It’ll ease all of us in reading, as we read all comments. Pls state your comments in short.
ape Rani nangita mokda unee..!
Deiyo koopa wela eyawa ban karalada..?
Ennako tikak api “god belief” eka gana katha karamu…
But don’t forget that “fucking jesus never be happy” as westerns say..!
I would rather like to read useful comments regardless of it’s length. As you can see, some of the comments are totally useless and intended for lame jokes or silly mud throwing and written in English using sinhala words and are very difficult to read and also a waste of time. Longer but useful and thought provoking comments are better for me.
