Minister of State for Defence of India M M Pallam Raju said India will continue to train Sri Lankan defence personnel at its establishments, notwithstanding opposition by parties from Tamil Nadu.

The minister's statement came against the backdrop of the demand for expulsion of Lankan officers from Defence Staff Services College in Wellington by the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha.

Raju told reporters that Sri Lanka is a friendly foreign country and the training will go on.

The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister has requested the Prime Minister to instruct the Defence Ministry to immediately halt the training being given to the two Sri Lankan defence personnel and send them back to their country immediately.
