There is a fine article on Time by Amantha Perera, “How China and India Displaced the West in Sri Lanka” which explains the political power play and post war games being played in the South East Asia.
How To Pull A Milibandanana, How India And China Nudged West To Commend Sri Lanka On Handling Of The War!In development, magerata, Politics, Postwar Sri Lanka, UN General Assembly on October 4, 2010 at 5:43 am
“We did not totally rely on the support of India and China, but their support did have a ripple effect” that neutralized the EU resolution” Dayan Jayatilleka, former Sri Lanka’s representative at the Security Council, has told Time.
Dayan Jayatilleka is currently a visiting lecturer at the Institute of South Asian Studies at the National University of Singapore. He approached the two Asin Power Houses for support and the result was that instead of a resolution censuring Sri Lanka, 29 members in the 47 member Council adopted a resolution commending the government. Only 12 voted against it, and six abstained.
That is how you pull a Miliband-anana.
“Having them (Norway) in our corner will to an extent neutralise western hostility,” he also has commented on the recent meeting between President Mahinda Rajapaksa and Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg on the sidelines of last month’s UN General Assembly sessions which could be the early signs of increasing support or waining resistence towards Sri Lanka.
