Sri Lanka has found no evidence to suggest that the country’s territory is being used by terror group LeT to train terrorists, External Affairs Minister Prof G L Peiris, who is on a four-day visit to India, said Saturday. He said there is no merit in such claims. Earlier, one of the accused in the Pune bakery blast case had said LeT operatives were being trained in Lanka.
“The matter was brought to our notice. It was examined by our defence authorities but we have not found anything to establish it,” Prof Peiris told Times of India adding that the two countries were involved in an intelligence sharing mechanism to prevent any such activity.
