Ladakh as UT is internal matter of India: Lanka PM

Agency News

Colombo, Aug 6 : Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe on Tuesday termed the government's decision to turn Ladakh a Union Territory as an "internal matter" of India.

"I understand Ladakh will finally become a Union Territory. With over 70% Buddhists, it will be the first Indian state with a Buddhist majority. The creation of Ladakh and the consequential restructuring are India's internal matters," Wickremesinghe said in a Twitter post.

"I have visited Ladakh and it is worth a visit," he added.(UNI)
