Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksha revealed that the slain LTTE leader Vellupillai Prabakaran had turned down a plea made by KP to surrender during the final phase of the war.

He made this statement at a press briefing held this morning at the Defence Ministry.

He further stated that he made an inquiry from the US Embassy as to whether the USA is planning to table a proposal against Sri Lanka.

According to him the US Embassy has stated that a proposal to clarify the services rendered to the Tamil community following the war will be tabled.

Furthermore, even Robert O Blake has failed to give an exact answer to this query.

The Defence Secretary took the opportunity to respond to false allegations made by Channel 4 while asserting the fact that the responsibility of preventing another war is at the hands of the security forces.
