No change in India's stance on LTTE
The Indian Express said in its Editorial that the verdict by the European Union court, which struck down the sanctions imposed on the LTTE by the EU in 2006, will have no effect on India’s stance.
It said that the EU had its own reasons to do so, but the court has not lifted the freezing of the assets owned by the banned organisation.
The Indian Express points out that though the organisation may have been defeated, its ideology remains intact.
It also says that no other country has experienced the severity of its danger as India, which lost a former prime minister to one of its suicide missions.
India has to take a holistic view of the situation, particularly the threat the LTTE poses.
Hence the Indian Express says that the decision of the European Union should, therefore, have no relevance to India.
