20190806

Colombo,  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% Buddhist 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.
