Lanka told to resolve Tamil issue for better trade: senior BJP leader

Lanka told to resolve Tamil issue for better trade: senior BJP leader
‘We have told them (Sri Lanka) that you should resolve the Tamil issue if you want trade and commerce between Colombo and New Delhi (to progress),’ Seshadri Chari, national convener of Foreign Policy Cell of the Bharatiya Janata Party, said.

He made the remarks after addressing a Singapore forum on ‘Prime minister Modi’s government: Imperatives & Challenges’.

Talking about China, Chari said, ‘We are dealing with China from the same point of view. We have told the Chinese that there would not be any negotiations or talks on Arunachal Pradesh.’

‘The Chinese are not worried about our Arunachal Pradesh,’ he said, adding that the Chinese were more worried about Tibet and Xinjiang.

Responding to a question on foreign policy of the new government, he said the government of India decides on foreign policy issues and not Tamil Nadu or West Bengal, an apparent reference to the perceived veto the two states had with the previous administration in Delhi.
