Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday assured the DMK that he would talk to External Affairs Minister of his government, S.M. Krishna, on Sri Lanka and take due steps to support a resolution to be moved by the US, France and Norway against Sri Lanka in the UNHRC for ‘human rights violations.’
The PM gave the assurance when DMK Parliamentary Party leader T.R. Baalu met Dr. Singh and presented a memorandum containing the DMK's resolution passed recently in this regard.
“The party told the Prime Minister, reiterating DMK president M. Karunanidhi's statement, that the DMK will not compromise anything less than a full support of the resolution (against Sri Lanka),” Indian English daily The Hindu quoted Mr. Baalu as saying.
In a statement issued in Chennai, Karunanidhi had urged India not to back Sri Lanka at the UNHRC meeting.
