Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne yesterday stated in Parliament that the Government will establish a Reconciliation Commission to build mutual trust among communities.
The Premier moving the motion to extend the Emergency Regulations by another one month said the objective of the Commission was to build the trust if there were any breach of trust among the communities due to the conflict that prevailed in the country. Proposals can be made to this Commission.
The Prime Minister also said this Commission is expected to prevent the communities falling into such an unfortunate situation again.
Benefits will be provided to the people who incurred losses during the conflict period. The Premier referring to the security situation stated that LTTE terrorism is active in the international arena under three main organisations. Their objective is to establish an Eelam in Sri Lanka.
Although the Government was able to eliminate terrorism from the country’s soil its real benefits could be realized only if lasting peace could be achieved.
