Former Army Commander General Sarath Fonseka was promoted to the rank of Field Marshal by the President at a special function held at the Defence Ministry ground.

Field Marshal is a very senior military rank, ordinarily senior to the general officer ranks.

Promotion to the rank of field marshal in many countries historically required extraordinary military achievement by a general, usually a wartime victory.

General Fonseka will be the first ever Field Marshal in Sri Lankan military history.
