Moving quickly to pre-empt any diplomatic damage that India's vote against Sri Lanka at the United Nations Human Rights Council on Thursday may cause, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has written to President Mahinda Rajapaksa, highlighting the “element of balance” that was introduced in the resolution because of Indian efforts.

 

Details of the letter were published in The Hindu newspaper.

 

The letter, which was sent on Friday night, recalled India's firm support for Sri Lanka in its struggle against terrorism.

 

The letter states that India believed that an opportunity had arisen to pursue the twin goals of “genuine national reconciliation” and reconstruction of infrastructure destroyed in the long war, and it was committed to helping its southern neighbour achieve these ends.
