The Northern Province Council resolution calling for an international probe into the alleged war crimes committed during the military operation against the LTTE only reflected the feelingsl of the Tamil people in Northern Sri Lanka, Chief Minister of the province C.V. Wigneswaran said on Wednesday.

“If the Sri Lankan State did not commit war crimes, why should they resist an international probe? It is one thing to speak in terms of an international inquiry. At another level, it is about people who have lost their dear ones,” he told The Hindu on Wednesday.
