Sri Lanka has assured India of initiating a lasting political solution to the ethnic issue in the island nation which could serve and protect the aspirations of all Lankan citizens.

The Sri Lankan government knows the importance of sustaining the peace that was achieved after the military defeat of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam in May this year, a high-powered delegation from here told counterparts in New Delhi.

The Lankan delegation consisting of senior Presidential advisor Basil Rajapaksa, President’s Secretary Lalit Weeratunga and defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa met Minister of External Affairs S M Krishna to discuss issues related to the resettlement of Tamil civilians.
