Sri Lanka should aspire for a political solution that safeguards the rights of the Tamil community, British Foreign Secretary David Milliband has said. Both Mr. Miliband and his deputy, Lord Mark Malloch-Brown reiterated British government’s serious concerns of the plight of the civilians caught in the conflict in Sri Lanka’s north. “We are calling for every right of the Tamil people; political, cultural and religious rights are respected. We are serious in our attempts. We also call for open access for journalists. But first step is to stop killings. We will use every possible tool available to us to stop killings,” Mr. Miliband said.
