President Mahinda Rajapaksa states that the Sinhala and Muslim communities of Sri Lanka had a strong trust placed in each other since historic times.

The president adds that under the current regime this trust has been further sustained.

Here the president stated that there were global powers which seek the segregation of nationalities in a united country.

He states that the trust between the Sinhala & Muslim communities in the country could not be broken asunder.

The president added that even during ancient time's kings ruling the highlands of Sri Lanka had granted special privileges to Muslim devotees, which remains unchanged to this day.

Meanwhile subsequent to attending this ceremony the president visited the International Buddhist Centre located in Nuwara-eliya and partook in religious activities.

The president was received by the students of the Sri-Senannanda Sunday school.

Moreover the president made it a part of his visit to inspect the newly constructed Stupa which was built to commemorate the Srisambuddhatwa Jayanthi.
