His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith has stated that we are capable of solving the problems in our country and the others should concentrate on their own countries.
He said that that a solution to the North-Eastern problem must be found through a dialogue and we should move forward. But this task belongs to us and not to anyone else. The others should attempt to solve their own problems and not interfere with ours, as it is not a civilized thing to do. He said that he is making the request as a Sri Lankan who loves his country.
The Cardinal expressed this view at a function held at the auditorium of the St. Mary’s College in Kegalla. The Catholics in the Sabaragamuva Province had organized the programme to felicitate him on his elevation to the position of Cardinal. A special service was held at the St. Mary’s church. The governors of the Provinces, Ministers and Parliamentarians participated in the occasion.
