No tears should be shed for the LTTE - Mr.Yasushi Akashi

Jul 2, 2011 10:36:34 AM - news.lk

Senior Adviser on Foreign Policy for the Japanese Government Mr. Yasushi Akashi addressing the 16th Joint Committee of the Sri Lanka Business Co-operation Meeting held in Tokyo last has said that the LTTE was a ruthless terrorist organization and should not be equated in status to a sovereign state such as Sri Lanka. Such an equation is not only unjustified but would pose a threat to the global fight against terrorism as well.  He has also said that the LTTE sabotaged the Tokyo meeting of which Japan and the United States were to be co-chairs, and again sabotaged the Geneva meeting when the government of Sri Lanka had already sent its delegates.
