There are “Very strong” lessons to be learnt from the turmoil in Sri Lanka, India noted at an all-party meeting held on Tuesday (19) to discuss the crisis here.
In the meeting External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar said India, as the immediate neighbour, is naturally worried over the “Very serious crisis” in the island-nation.
Government’s approach to Sri Lanka was explained in great detail. Appreciate the concerns expressed and suggestions made in the deliberations.
