Will 'remain supportive' of Lanka: India


NEW DELHI: With former prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe elected President of Sri Lanka, India said on Wednesday that it will remain supportive of the quest of the people of Sri Lanka for stability and economic recovery.
Wickremesinghe, considered close to India, was appointed PM in May this year following the resignation of Mahinda Rajapaksa. “The Parliament of Sri Lanka, in exercise of the provisions of the Sri Lankan Constitution, has today elected Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe as the President of Sri Lanka,” said the Indian high commission in a tweet.
“As a close friend and neighbour of Sri Lanka and a fellow democracy, we will continue to be supportive of the quest of the people of Sri Lanka for stability and economic recovery, through democratic means and values,” it added.
The high commission also described as “baseless” and “purely speculative” reports about “efforts at political level from India to influence political leaders in Sri Lanka regarding elections”. “It is reiterated that India supports the realisation of aspirations of the people of Sri Lanka in accordance with democratic means and values, established institutions as well as constitutional provisions, and doesn’t interfere in internal affairs and democratic processes of another country,” it added.
