Ban Ki-moon ‘helping LTTE’ – Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka’s hardline government Thursday criticised United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for expressing deep concern about Tamil civilians in the Vanni region. Sri Lankan human rights ministry official Rajiva Wijesinghe told reporters that there were no civilian casualties in the Colombo government’s ongoing offensive and that the UN Chief’s comments were helping the LTTE. On Wednesday a UN statement in New York said: “the secretary general expresses his deep concern over the increased hostilities in northern Sri Lanka, and the grave humanitarian consequences for civilians.” Kilde: TAmilnet.com Automatisk oversat med google til Dansk.
