International anti terrorism campaign by the previous government is a failure: charges foreign Minister
Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera said the State Department report on terrorism 2014 has proved that the action taken by the previous government to prevent the LTTE from raising its head again was a failure.
The US report issued recently stated although Sri Lanka defeated the LTTE militarily, the LTTE global network is still active.
However, making a special statement in parliament today, foreign minister Mangala Samaraweera said that the US report for 2014 is not applicable to the current government.
He also reminded that the current government was able to re-activate the LTTE ban in Europe.
