Sri Lankan High Commissioner to the UK, Dr Chris Nonis has stated that there is an attempt by external forces to divide rather than unify Sri Lanka.

He emphasised that the wealth of the country was in the diversity of its people of varying backgrounds, ethnicities and religions.

He said it was imperative to make optimum use of that diversity and build a strong and unified Sri Lanka which would then be able to resist those external forces that seek to divide rather than unify Sri Lanka.

Dr Nonis was speaking to a large gathering of the British including parliamentarians from the House of Lords and the House of Commons, at a reception held at the Sri Lanka High Commission in London to celebrate the 66th Independence Day of Sri Lanka.

The High Commissioner thanked the 53 London-based Commonwealth high commissioners who, in their capacity as members of the Board of Governors of the Commonwealth Secretariat, played a pivotal role in ensuring that Sri Lanka hosted CHOGM 2013 so successfully.
