The attention of the Ministry of External Affairs has been drawn to the recent incidents that took place in Bangladesh which have caused a sense of anxiety and grief among some sections of the Sri Lankan community both here in Sri Lanka and in Bangladesh.

In this regard the Government of Sri Lanka wishes to note the following, based on a report provided by Sri Lanka High Commissioner Sarath Weragoda on the request of the Ministry of External Affairs.

The attack on several temples, pagodas and Buddhist dwellers in the Chittagong District Bangladesh sparked out from 29th September, causing panic among the Buddhist community living in the Chittagong District.

Officials from the Police Diplomatic Security Divisions in Dhaka had informed the High Commission that security in Chittagong and affected areas have been brought under control and also there is no security threat to the Sri Lankan Community including the University Students in Chittagong.

The Government of Sri Lanka in close consultations with the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh is constantly monitoring the situation in order to ensure the safety and well being of all Sri Lankans in Bangladesh.
