Prime Minister Manmohan Singh affirmed India's commitment for a political solution to the Sri Lankan Tamils issue during a meeting with TNA leaders, who would now consider joining a Parliamentary committee.

Manmohan Singh also told a TNA delegation that India will not "backtrack" from its position that Tamils in Sri Lanka should lead a life of "dignity and self respect" in a peaceful environment.

The Prime Minister said India would continue to engage with the Tamil National Alliance in its efforts to find a political solution.

During separate meetings with Manmohan Singh and External Affairs Minister S M Krishna, TNA leader R Sampanthan said the TNA would consider joining the Parliamentary Select Committee on finding a political solution provided that the Sri Lankan government gives a firm assurance.

During the meetings, the Indian side also explained its position and how it was working with the Sri Lankan Government in implementing the 13th Amendment plus approach.
