Nearly 95 Buddhist monks from Sri Lanka have landed at the newly-built Kushi Nagar International Airport, for an inauguration ceremony.

This event marked the first flight that landed to facilitate Sri Lankan pilgrims who can visit to Dambadiva on pilgrimage.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi represented the Indian government at the opening of the airport. Sri Lankan Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Namal Rajapaksa represented Sri Lanka. Indian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Gopal Bagle and Tourism Minister Prasanna Ranatunga arrived at the Katunayake Airport to greet the delegation. 

Meantime, US$.100 million loan pledged by India to Sri Lanka to develop the energy sector. Recently, the Indian Advani Group of companies will invest US$ 500 million in the joint venture to develop the Colombo Port West Terminal and an American company, New Fortress will invest another US$ 250 million investment in the Kerawalapitiya LNG gas power plant.

The question is whether these Indian and American investments are going to facilitate Sri Lanka’s structural genocide against Tamils?
