[PTI, Wednesday, 23 September 2009 09:12 No Comment]

External Affairs Minister S M Krishna met his Sri Lankan counterpart Rohitha Bogollagama here and discussed the issue of resettlement of over 280,000 internally displaced persons in the island nation.

The two leaders met on the sidelines of a Climate Change Summit convened at the United Nations.

"The discussion covered the settlement of displaced persons primarily," Krishna told PTI.

"They have told us that the process of de-mining is going on. Simultaneously the resettlement also is being done," he added.

Krishna, however, noted that he had not discussed devolution of power at this meeting. "They are now preoccupied with settlement issue," he said.
