The Defence Secretary is of the view that the experiences of the Sri Lankan forces that destroyed the world’s deadliest terrorism will be of significance to devastating global terrorism. He invited the Military and the Police Offices to extend support in this respect.
Gothabaya Rajapaksa made this request addressing a ceremony related to the launching of the book “The Rise and the Fall of the LTTE”. It has been authored by IGP Mahinda Balasuriya. The ceremony was held in Colombo. Further, giving his views, the Defence Secretary said experience should be used to write a book after a prolonged investigation.
There are so many incidents which took place during the war and the public are eager to know about it. He thanked the IGP for taking the first step and showing the way to other senior officers in the Military and the Police, as it is the first post-war book to be launched.
The keynote speech was made by Prof. Rohan Gunaratne, veteran analyst on terrorist activities. Many scholars were present.
