The Centre was “closely monitoring” the situation in Sri Lanka and was taking all steps for the safety of Tamils living there, Union Minister V. Narayanasamy said on Saturday.

“India was closely monitoring the situation over the Sri Lankan Tamils issue in the Island Nation and was taking all steps for their safety”, the Minister of State in PMO he told reporters here.

Responding to a query, Mr. Narayanasamy said the Centre would not take any hasty decisions on the Sri Lankan issue.

“India will take steps based on what kind of resolutions come in the UNHRC meet and what kind of resolutions passed in it. It will not be fair for India to support the resolution taken in Geneva before it gets passed,” Mr. Narayanaswamy told reporters here.
