Minister of External Affairs Professor G.L Peiris says that northern provincial council should understand that complaining to the western countries without serving the people, cannot be approved.
The minister expressed this view at the 4th defense conference organized by the Sri Lanka Army in Colombo yesterday.
This year’s conference is held under the theme “Sri Lanka: Challenges to a Rising Nation.”
The conference which commenced yesterday will be held for 3 days with the participation of nearly 350 representatives from 43 countries.
Addressing the inaugural session of the defense conference, minister of external affairs Professor G.L Peiris said that all powers of the 13th amendment to the constitution have been granted to the northern provincial council, except the police powers.
Secretary to the ministry of finance who delivered the key note address at yesterday’s session said that we should be vigilant about threats which could be posed towards national security.
