Prime Minister Ratnasiri Wickramanayaka told Parliament yesterday that there were international forces unfavourable to us attempting to strengthen the LTTE terrorist organisation abroad.
They are assisted by certain local elements that wish to destabilize the Government and arrest the country’s rapid economic development drive, Prime Minister Wickramanayaka said.
The Prime Minister making his statement moving the motion to extend the State of Emergency by another one month, said certain elements attempting to strengthen the LTTE were arrested in Germany and another LTTE working abroad was arrested in Dehiwala.
"There were anti-Sri Lankan schemes in progress with the support of certain super powers in the world as well as certain other organisations."
The Prime Minister expressed his regret over the fact that there were groups in the country who were engaged in collecting facts and distorting them to support cooked up allegations put forward by anti national forces.
