Director of National Authority for Implementation of  Chemical Weapons Agreement in Sri Lanka,  Dr. Rohan P. Perera, says that he rejects the false views expressed and charges made by some to the fact that chemical weapons were used during the last phase of the humanitarian operation.

Issuing a communiqué Dr. Rohan P. Perera said that there was no evidence at all of a use of chemical weapons in Sri Lanka.

It is said in the release that while Sri Lanka is a founder member of the International Chemical Weapons Agreement signed in January 1993, Sri Lanka has not imported chemical weapons or chemicals needed for producing chemical weapons and the view that chemical weapons were used in the country was only fiction of the mind.

Currently this Authority maintains a full data file with regard to listed chemicals used in Sri Lanka, the places where they are used, the places where they are stored, the purposes for which they are used, and the institutions that use them.

Accordingly the Authority attests that according to the investigations and observations carried out by the   National Authority for Implementation of  Chemical Weapons Agreement it was not possible to find anywhere in the country a deposit site where chemical weapons are stored or even the minimum facility for converting listed chemicals to a chemical weapon.
