Minister Professor G L Peiris addressing a gathering of professionals in Anuradhapura. Although the LTTE has been defeated militarily, their cadres still surviving in foreign countries are planning to disrupt Sri Lanka’s economy and to put the Government of Sri Lanka into difficulty by making war crime charges in collaboration with countries in the Western world, External Affairs Minister, Professor G L Peiris said.
Speaking further the Minister said that since their main objective is to prevent the arrival of tourists and investors in Sri Lanka, it is the duty and responsibility of the Sri Lankan professionals, both local and foreign, to defeat such attempts of the LTTE terrorists.
The Minister expressed these views while addressing a meeting organized by Anuradhapura SLFP Professionals organization and held at Anuradhapura Technical College auditorium to solicit their assistance for the Development Program of the Government.
