New Delhi: Sri Lankan PM, Ranil Wickremesinghe, now firmly in the saddle after the recent parliamentary elecions, visted New Delhi, and held talks Prime Minister Narendra Modi today on maritime security cooperation and fishermen.

While the previous regime had a pro chineese tilt that worried New Delhi, the current one seems to lean towards India. PM Modi stressed on the need for more devolution of powers to Tamils while Sri Lanka’s PM discussed a UNHRC resolution which is coming up in Geneva this week, on Lanka’s human rights abuses during the civil war.

PM Modi said, “I am confident that with the wisdom and will of the leadership in Sri Lanka and the support of the people, Sri Lanka will achieve genuine reconciliation and development, so that all Sri Lankans, including the Sri Lankan Tamil community, can live a life of equality, justice, peace and dignity in a united Sri Lanka.”

Lankan PM Wickremesinghe , who made India his first stop after winning last month’s election, said his government was “looking at how power sharing and devolution takes place within Constitution and that much more can be done.”

He added that he and Mr Modi had “deeper discussions on security matters – on maritime security in Indian Ocean and terrorism.”
