President Maithripala Sirisena said that he considers resolving the problems of the people of the north is part of his responsibility. 

In an interview with the Hindu, President Sirisena stated reconciliation could not be achieved overnight. 

He told the Hindu that Southern leaders seldom toured the North but he visited the North 11 times within the last 22 months.

President Sirisena said that he interacted with the people in the North and said 90% of Northern people voted for him expecting him to solve their burning problems.

The President also said that the new Constitution will take steps to strengthen the reconciliation among different communities. 

He pointed out that the majority Sinhala Buddhist in the South should be satisfied as lasting reconciliation could not be achieved without their agreement.

He said therefore the reconciliation process is not an easy task but the challenge should be won as the country should not face any conflict in the future.
