Sethu project: Lanka may drag India to international court
Replying to a question in Parliament, which discussed India’s Sethu Samundram Canal project on Thursday, foreign minister Lakshman Kadirgamar said there was a possibility of taking India to an international court.
“This is obviously a measure of last resort in the event of failure to resolve any issue through bilateral consultations and friendly co-operation,” the minister said.
However, he said he was hopeful that the two countries will be able to work together and address the environmental and livelihood issues and mitigate any adverse effects.
The Lankan foreign minister said resorting to international legal action now was “premature” but remained in the “realm of possibility.
