The government says that Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's decision not to attend the CHOGM summit was not a setback and it understood the domestic political compulsions which had forced the Indian Prime Minister to take such a decision.


External Affairs Minister GL Peiris said it will not affect the success of CHOGM, after Manmohan Singh wrote a letter to President Mahinda Rajapaksa saying he will be unable to personally attend the summit from the 15th of November.

Meanwhile, the Indian High Commission confirmed that Singh's letter addressed to President Rajapaksa has been delivered to the President's office.

The Prime Minister has decided against undertaking the visit in view of the stiff opposition by parties in Tamil Nadu as well as a section in Congress.
