Could Sri Lanka Still be Commonwealth Venue ?


Thsaranee Gunasekara in a pinion piece to Lanka Guardian said that now as India has a US resalution worded as it wished voteing against Sri Lanka will not be a issue.  Now the next issue would be the proposed Commonwealth Summit in Sri  Lanka.

It is now a virtual certainty. Barring some last-second, utterly unforeseeable, development, India will vote for the new US resolution on Sri Lanka. The original resolution has been amended to take on board Indian concerns. Indian worries would range from a reactive lurch by Colombo in Beijing’s direction to the impact an intrusive resolution might have on Delhi’s own ‘freedom of action’ in Kashmir and elsewhere.
