Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says that it is a tragedy that people who are ready to sacrifice their own lives for the sake of their beliefs, tend to disregard the very essence of all these beliefs - the nature.

Releasing a message to mark the World Environment Day which falls today, the Premier further noted that it is insensitive to refrain from taking any measures to protect the environment, while knowing that environmental destruction leads to the extinction of humans.

He further noted that extreme greed has led the humans to exploit resources, thereby causing the destruction of the environment and the human race.

Therefore, the Prime Minister shows that everyone should be determined to protect the environment for the benefit of mankind.

Meanwhile, the National World Environment Day ceremony is currently held in Matale under the patronage of President Maithripala Sirisena.

Addressing the ceremony, President Maithripala Sirisena noted that the politicians are responsible for the environmental destructions witnessed today.
