The resettlement and rehabilitation of Tamils in the North-East "have been of the highest and most important priority" for the Indian government, said Manmohan Singh in a reply to a letter by DMK leader Karunanidhi.
"We have also conveyed to the Government of Sri Lanka the need for taking forward dialogue with the political representatives of the Sri Lankan Tamils on devolution of power. In this context, we remain engaged with the Government of Sri Lanka for the achievement of a future for the Tamil community in Sri Lanka that is marked by equality, dignity, justice and self-respect."
