JVP: Govt. Must Reveal Details

Aug 8, 2011 9:07:32 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The JVP today called on the government to clarify the issue related to a US aircraft violating Sri Lanka’s airspace.

The party also accused theUSAof violating international law by intruding into Sri Lankan airspace.

The party’s politburo issued a statement today claiming the incident was a threat to the country’s sovereignty.

“No country could intrude into airspace without prior permission,” the statement said.

The JVP expressed suspicion as to whether the intrusion was connected with the defence pactSri Lankahad signed with theUSin 2007.

“We urge the government to make an investigation immediately and reveal the factual situation to the masses,” the party said.
