India's statement on Sri Lanka

India will work with the people and Government of Sri Lanka to provide relief to those affected by the tragic conflict, and to rapidly rehabilitate all those who have been displaced, bringing their lives to normalcy as soon as possible.

It is our view that as the conventional conflict in Sri Lanka comes to an end, this is the moment when the root causes of conflict in Sri Lanka can be addressed. This would include political steps towards the effective devolution of power within the Sri Lankan Constitution so that Sri Lankans of all communities, including the Tamils, can feel at home and lead lives of dignity of their own free will.

On April 27, 2009, the Minister of External Affairs had stated that "the need of the hour is for urgent steps to ameliorate the humanitarian situation of those who have come out from conflict zone as well as to bring the remaining civilians and IDPs in the No Fire Zone out to safety. The IDPs and innocent civilians are the mainvictims of the conflict and every measure must be taken to protect them and guarantee their welfare. I am happy to announce that the Prime Minister has approved a grant of Rs. 100 crore (Rs 1 billion) for providing humanitarian relief assistance to innocent civilians who have been evacuated from the conflict zone".
