SL war crimes resolution: DMK, Left welcome India’s move

CNN-IBN,New Delhi: The United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva adopted the resolution against Sri Lanka on alleged war crimes on Thursday with 24 countries, including India, voting in favour, 15 against and eight abstaining.
Welcoming the move of India to vote in favour of the US-backed resolution, DMK MP Kanimozhi said that all the parties in Tamil Nadu were asking for it and the credit for it went to each one of them.
She said that the move “makes sure that Tamils get their rights, rehabilitation happens and they get justice”.”It is very important that international law is followed. Many countries have voted against it,” said Kanimozhi.
Referring to the war crimes in Sri Lanka, the DMK MP termed it as human rights violation.
The move was also welcomed by Left leader D Raja, who said, “I thank the Prime Minister.”
He, however, said that the need was to keep up the pressure on Sri Lanka.
Raja said, “We have to continue pressure on Lanka, so that Sri Lankan Tamils get genuine political solution.”
The government, meanwhile, said that the move was meant to protect human rights.
Union Minister Vayalar Ravi said, “The government was concerned about the safety and security of Tamils in Sri Lanka, so naturally, it is a move to protect human right.”
“India always stood for the prevention of human rights violation…this is what India has done,” he said.
