Indian missiles won’t target Lanka: HC

 

 
The Indian High Commission yesterday alleged that a deliberate attempt was being made to undermine Indo-Lanka relations.
 
A senior spokesperson accused a section of the media of propagating lies. The official was responding to recent media reports of India deploying missiles targeting Sri Lanka’s strategic installations. The official said: "We have seen news reports in some websites and in the print media claiming that Indian missiles were targeted at Sri Lanka’s strategic installations. These reports are completely baseless and fabricated."
 
"India has a longstanding indigenous missile development programme. This programme is defensive in nature and is not directed against any country. Speculation on such sensitive issues in a manner calculated to mislead, is out of tune with the spirit of the friendly and close relations India and Sri Lanka enjoy, including in the fields of defence and security."
 
Responding to a query by The Island, the official said that contrary various media reports, the relations between the countries were strong. The spokesman cited the ongoing post-war recovery projects as well as other investments a sign of strong relationship.
