Cameron’s Way Is Not Our Way: New Delhi

The Government of India yesterday expressed doubts about British Prime Minister David Cameron‘s approach to addressing war crimes allegations in Sri Lanka and claimed that the style was counter productive, an Indian media report says.

Cameron, who left Colombo after attending CHOGM, had set a four month deadline for Sri Lanka to order an independent probe into alleged brutality against civilians or face an international UN-backed investigation.

The Economic Times in India quoted Government sources in Delhi as being dismissive of Cameron’s approach. “It is not our style to go and talk like Cameron did…this can be counter-productive.

We know what could be an effective approach and our interlocutors also know what India desires,” a senior source said.

Claiming that India has not lost leverage in Sri Lanka after PM’s decision to skip the CHOGM owing to domestic compulsions, the source said, “…The fact that external affairs minister went (there) is a sign of commitment to Sri Lanka… Just as Sri Lanka cannot be wished away, India cannot be wished away,” the report quoted the source as saying.
