Gulf News praises Sri Lanka’s rigid stand in the face of world pressure

Jul 4, 2010 4:42:33 AM - itnnews.lk

The Gulf News has said that Sri Lanka should maintain her sovereignty and carry out independent and impartial probes into allegations.

While Iran and its pursuit of nuclear power seems to occupy the UN Chief and members of the Security Council most, very little merit is given to calls by regional governments to free the region of all nuclear arsenal, including those held by Israel.

The paper queries as to why the Sri Lankan Government should accede to his request? It also asked whether the UN Secretary General or his organization ever demanded a similar probe against the continuing war crimes being perpetuated by the Israelis against the people of Palestine? Crimes that are witnessed by most of the free world on live television, and yet remain ignored on the agendas of the UN body?

Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka can be brought out onto the carpet and full investigations are demanded at the risk of sanctions or embargoes. Bravo, Sri Lanka it said, calling on the country to maintain its sovereignty and carry out its own independent and impartial probes into such allegations
