India says ties with Lanka strong

2013 Jul 19

The Indian government says its ties with Sri Lanka are strong and it has no reason to be concerned over reports that Sri Lanka is having talks with Pakistan over a nuclear pact.

India External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid noted that India is actively involved in the rehabilitation of Tamils in Sri Lanka, the Press Trust of India reported.

“I cannot speak for the Sri Lankan government but we have many areas of cooperation with them. We are actively involved in the rehabilitation of Tamils in the country,” he said.

“We are confident of our relations in our neighbourhood and it is not a cause of sleepless nights if someone wants to compete with us. We are way ahead in our relationships,” he added.
