Self-determination is the basis for any political solution - British Shadow Chancellor

Friday November 22, 2019

Any political solution to the Tamil national question in Sri Lanka should be founded on the principles of self-determination, the United Kingdom's Chancellor of the Exchequer has announced.

 

In a video message published on Facebook and Twitter on Friday afternoon, Mr John McDonnell also called for the occupying Sri Lankan military forces to be withdrawn from the Tamil homeland.

 

The Shadow Chancellor also added that the brutal oppression of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka constituted an attempt to destroy the Tamil race.
