President Rajapaksa has said that he is prepared to realize the development aspirations entertained by the people as terrorism has been eliminated. The President made this observation before world leaders while addressing the 65th Heads of State Summit of the UN.
The President pointed out that the process of healing and rebuilding should evolve from within. History has taught that externally imposed solutions breed resentment. He said in contrast Sri Lanka follows a home grown process which reflects the culture and its traditions. His vision is to have sound infrastructure in the national, provincial and rural levels to make development meaningful to the entirety of society. He said that Sri Lanka will always support the UN which forms the bedrock of this situation.
