* Sri Lanka's main opposition to support government in genuine effort to resolve the national issue
Wed, May 28, 2014, 09:08 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May 28, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) has said the party will support the government in genuine efforts to address the national issue.

UNP parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella told a news conference today that the party wanted to know how the government planned to address the national issue.

He observed that the party also wanted to know the government's response to the request made by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi with regard to presenting a political solution to the national issue.

The UNP is to raise a question in this regard in parliament when it meets next week.

According to Kiriella, the government has continuously been asked by India and the international community to honor the promises given with regard to the political solution to resolve the national issue.

He added that Sri Lanka would have to face the consequences, as the BJP government of India had taken one step forward and pledged in its election manifesto that it would have discussions with all state governments in India before formulating its foreign policy.
