Sri Lanka's Foreign Ministry Permanent Secretary Jayanath Colombage, in exclusive interview to India Today, said he expected India's support ahead of next week's UNHRC sessions on the island nation's rights and accountability record.
"Hope India will vote in favour of Sri Lanka at the UNHRC. We understand Tamil Nadu elections are coming up and Sri Lanka is always an issue. So we understand. India is a great friend. We expect India to stand by Sri Lanka," Jayanath Colombage said.
