Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris has said that the international community cannot be duped by false propaganda of the terrorists. Expressing views after a tour of the United Kingdom, the Minister emphasized that the British Government was prepared to invest in Sri Lanka following the economic and political stability prevailing in the island.
The Minister said there is a fine opportunity for the Companies in England to work in close collaboration with Sri Lanka in many sectors. Wide opportunities are now available in the fields of tourism, investment and international trade. It is very clear that the British Government is now very much interested in working very closely with Sri Lanka following the latest developments that had taken place in the island and further solidify the existing relations between the two countries. Minister Prof. Peiris added that this was very clear from the discussions he has already had with the British Ministers.
