Lanka no place for anti-Indian acts- MR

[DailyMirror, Friday, 31 July 2009 08:48 No Comment]

President Mahinda Rajapaksa has said that he would never allow Sri Lanka to become a platform for anti-Indian activities by any country.

In an interview with India’s Tehelka website, the President said, “I am sensitive to India’s feelings because India is my elder brother, and I have said this openly to Western powers. But all countries must realise that even if I call them friends, I am nobody’s stooge and never will be. I am a Sri Lankan nationalist.”

He also said: ‘I don’t believe any Indian government could have lived with Eelam – a state headed by a terrorist military dictatorship led by a murderous tyrant.’

The President said that the peace door was closed on him by Prabhakaran when the response was more terrorism, bombings, and the building up of the LTTE’s armed strength, including an air force and navy.
