Though the Sri Lanka issue has entered the realm of politics, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said India would finalise its stand after examining the final draft of the U.S. piloted resolution.

“The resolution in its final form will be available late this evening, Geneva time. Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai has also asked our Permanent Representative to the U.N. Dilip Sinha to come over to Delhi tomorrow,” the External Affairs Ministry spokesperson told journalists. “We will have consultations in the matter as it is an important matter for us and he [Mr. Sinha] will be able to brief senior officials of the government on the ground realities in Geneva and latest position on that. So, the call will only be taken subsequent to the availability of a resolution and arrival of the Ambassador here for consultation with the senior official in the MEA,” he added.
