Quotes

...When this writer raised the issue with TNA leader R Sampanthan on the night of November 15, 2005, the Trincomalee-based politician said: "Nothing can be achieved by supporting Rajapaksa or Wickremesinghe. Batticaloa-based TNA heavyweight Joseph Pararajasingham told the writer that the decision was taken after having met the LTTE leadership in Kilinochchi. Both Sampanthan and Pararajasingham stressed that there wouldn’t be a change in the position taken by the LTTE and the TNA. In a related move, TNA MP Sivajilingham dismissed claims that a victory for Rajapaksa would lead to an imminent outbreak of all out war (TNA refuses to change polls boycott stance-The Island, November 16, 2005). The LTTE-TNA move (remember, the TNA declared the LTTE as the sole representative of Tamil speaking people in the run-up to Dec 2001 parliamentary election. The EU in its post-election report asserted that the TNA benefited from LTTE violence directed at its rivals. The TNA never challenged the EU report)."
"Civilian lives are not pawns for fighters to trade. The hostages should be let go immediately" the AFP quoted Whitson as having said, while citing the Syrian government giving armed groups safe passage out of the besieged Old City of Homs in...
"We are working closely with the Indian Army", he stressed. "India is very supportive and extends the most assistance in terms of fulfilling the need for advanced foreign training to our officers and men"
` "`In this context, the Government of India attaches high priority to the education sector. Recognizing the immense potential that exists in the two countries to tap knowledge as a key driver of economic and social advancement, the two countries had agreed in 2010 to launch the ‘India - Sri Lanka Knowledge Initiative’. Some of the elements of this Initiative include expansion of India’s scholarship programme (currently about 800 scholarships are available annually to Sri Lankan students); India’s assistance to the Ten-year Presidential Initiative to steer Sri Lanka towards a Trilingual Society by 2020, setting up of the Centre for Contemporary Indian Studies (CCIS) at the University of Colombo and India’s assistance to the initiative  President Mahinda Rajapaksa on promoting English and Information technology," a news release issued in connection with the signing of the MOU said."
