Sri Lankan Minister of External Affairs Prof. G. L. Peiris acknowledged the ongoing co-operation on counter-terrorism, and judicial action taken by several member countries of the European Union against terrorist elements inimical to Sri Lanka. 

 

He stated that there are continuing fund raising activities carried out by LTTE front organizations and reiterated the importance of sustained vigilance in this  regard.

 

The Minister referred to Europol’s Terrorist Situation and Trend Report this year which states that these organizations are still considered active and benefiting from some support, especially in countries with a significant Diaspora.

 

The Minister made these statements during bilateral discussions with The Delegation for Relations with Countries of South Asia in the European Parliament.

 

The two sides also agreed to schedule dates for the 18th European Union – Sri Lanka Joint Commission in Brussels within the next few months.
