NEW DELHI (AFP) - India promised Wednesday to push for a “strong” UN resolution urging Sri Lanka to investigate alleged war crimes, a day after the issue caused a split in the ruling coalition. The US is drafting a resolution against Sri Lanka at the UN Rights Council which is expected to be voted on Thursday. Chidambaram said India would propose amendments to the draft resolution being negotiated, but he denied that India was trying to water it down - as was claimed in some media reports. “India’s position has always been and remains that the UNHRC should adopt a strong resolution that would send a resolute message to SLanka and goad Sri Lanka to accept an independent and credible investigation,” he said.
