President Maithripala Sirisena states that Sri lanka will continue to assist France to stand strong against terrorism.

President Sirisena made these remarks when he met with French President François Hollande on the sidelines of the 24th commonwealth leader’s summit.

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister David Cameron met with President Maithripala Sirisena on the sidelines of the Commonwealth summit in Malta.

The British Prime Minister said that Britain is committed to standing up for those affected by Sri Lanka’s civil war.

Britain will give Sri Lanka 6.6 million Pounds over three years to help Sri Lanka continue its recovery from war.

The money will be backed up by a non-resident defence attache and access to British armed forces training to help with military reform.

The aid will also help people displaced from their towns and villages during the war to return home.

Meanwhile, Baroness Patricia Scotland from the UK was elected secretary general of the Commonwealth at the Commonwealth summit in Malta by leaders of the 53-nation bloc.

She was one of three contenders for the post and will officially take office in April next year as the sixth Commonwealth secretary general.

Born in Dominica, the 60-year-old, is a former attorney general in Britain and will be the first woman to occupy the post.
