Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said that India was keen on engaging with the Sri Lankan government and all political parties to help with the ongoing reconciliation process in the island nation.

This was conveyed to a visiting Tamil National Alliance delegation, signalling broad continuity of the Sri Lankan policy adopted by the United Progressive Alliance government.

External Affairs Ministry spokesman said the Minister stressed the need for a political solution that “addresses substantially the aspirations of the Tamil community in Sri Lanka for equality, dignity, justice and self respect within the framework of a united Sri Lanka.

The delegation led by R. Sampanthan will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi to put forth a detailed projection of their understanding of the situation and suggestions on India’s engagement in Sri Lanka.

According to a TNA source, Swaraj assured the delegation that India would continue to emphasise the need for devolution of powers as per the 13th Amendment.
