External Affairs Minister G.L. Peries disclosed today about an ulterior motive to harm relations between Sri Lanka and Muslim countries in order to weaken Sri Lanka in international conferences.
Addressing a group of Ambassadors and High Commissioners at his office yesterday, Minister Peries stated a premeditated and callous undertaking is in place to tarnish the government’s image.
The Minister pointed out to the diplomats that certain factions are trying to take narrow political gains over the prevailing situation.
