Sops to Tamils ahead of srisena’s India visit

Sri Lanka on Thursday announced a series of measures aimed at the Tamil minority in the war-ravaged northern province, just days ahead of President Maithripala Sirisena's maiden visit to India. Sirisena will arrive in India on February 16, his first overseas visit after being elected president last month.

Acting cabinet spokesman Lakshman Kiriella said that some 1,000 acres of land under Sri Lankan Air Force's control in the high security zone of Palaly in the northern Jaffna peninsula are to be released.
