Secretary to the President Lalith Weeratung in an interview with Swarnavahini Wednesday night said one of the causes for terrorism was the lack of communication between people belonging to different communities. Therefore, the government encourages all, especially the public servants and school children to learn the two official languages – Sinhala and Tamil, and the link language – English in the future.
