President invited again to address Oxford Union

Oct 2, 2010 12:51:38 PM - itnnews.lk

President Rajapaksa has been invited to address the Oxford Union again. This is the first time in the history of the prestigious organization, a Head of State has been invited to address it for the second time.

The President of the Union, James Kingston, in his invitation to President Rajapaksa says that the latter’s ‘extra ordinary leadership’ has seen the momentous achievement of a final and total victory against the forces so long threatening the peace and stability of the Sri Lankan people. On behalf of the Oxford Union, Kingston said the President’s successful conclusion of his 30 year military conflict ranks as one of the most significant acts seen by the world in recent years; and, in conjunction with the Sri Lankan Society of Oxford, they humbly wish to use the occasion of his visit to present him with a mark of the Oxford Union’s respect for his accomplishment in fostering lasting peace.
