Sri Lanka’s interests best served by peace for Tamils: Jaishankar.

Recalling the positive impact of India’s developmental and rehabilitation support, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar told his visiting Sri Lankan counterpart G L Peiris that Colombo’s interests are best served by ensuring equality, justice, peace and respect for Tamil people within a united Sri Lanka.

“Devolution of power is an important aspect of this process,” the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said in its official statement after two days of meetings between Peiris and top Indian officials. Besides meeting Jaishankar, Peiris also met NSA Ajit Doval and Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla.
