Opposition asks Sri Lankan government not to create rifts with India

June 14, Colombo: The main opposition United National Party (UNP) has called on the Sri Lankan government to act diplomatically and not cause any rifts between India and Sri Lanka.

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake told a press conference that the government needed to be diplomatic when dealing with the international community.

He said the issues between India and Sri Lanka should be resolved through discussion.

Attanayake also called on the government to release the details of the discussion held with the Indian government delegation that visited the country last week.

He said the people needed to know what the government had agreed to implement and refused to do.

Media reports said the Sri Lankan President had told a recent high-powered Indian delegation that the government was not able to concede land and police powers to provincial councils in accordance with the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.
