Indian National Security Adviser Shivshankar Menon — who met top Sri Lanka leaders in Colombo — emphasised the need for Colombo to fulfil its commitment to India and the international community regarding a political settlement that would go beyond the 13th Amendment of the country’s Constitution.

 

President Rajapaksa, during talks with Menon, said that the Parliamentary Select Committee is the best forum to reach a consensus on the implementation of the 13th Amendment.

 

President Rajapaksa explained to Menon the practical problems in devolving land and police powers to the provinces of a small country such as Sri Lanka and stressed that the structure that is implemented should apply and be acceptable to all parts of the country.
