Chennai: DMK, a key constituent of the ruling UPA at the Centre, on Friday  insisted that New Delhi must support a US-sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka over alleged war crimes in United Nations Human Rights Council and said it would "not compromise on anything less than a full support".
The message was conveyed to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh by DMK Parliamentary Party leader T R Baalu in New Delhi, two days after his party chief M Karunanidhi had urged that India should not back Sri Lanka though Colombo had claimed its support.
During the discussion which lasted for 20 minutes, Baalu categorically reiterated the statement made by Karunanidhi that DMK "will not compromise (on) anything less than a full support of the resolution brought by US, France and Norway at UNHRC", a release from Baalu's office said.
Karunanidhi had said on Wednesday that India should not back Sri Lanka at any cost when the UNHRC resolution comes up for voting, while recalling DMK's resolution adopted at its high-level committee meeting in April, stressing that Sri Lanka should be tried for alleged war crimes.
Sri Lanka has received India's full backing against the US-sponsored motion on alleged human rights abuses by its army during the war against LTTE, the country's special human rights envoy Mahinda Samarasinghe had recently claimed.
