President Maithripala Sirisena stated that some are attempting to degrade the achievement and credit due to the Government which convinced the European Union to once again provide the GSP Plus concession.

The President also stated that the Government’s objective was not to introduce a federal system or divide the country but rather to promote national reconciliation to prevent a future conflict.

President Sirisena expressed these views at an event organized to promote religious harmony in Galle.
