Speak against violence, promote efforts to protect harmony: EU urges Lankan Leaders

EU 700 01
European Union has called on political, religious and other community leaders to continue to speak out against violence and all those inciting unrest and distrust and to make every effort to promote understanding and harmony between communities.

European Union made the appeal in a joint statement issued in agreement with the Embassies of France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Romania and the UK High Commission, as well as the Embassies of Norway and Switzerland.

The statement said:

”We are concerned about the recent incidents of communal violence that have occurred following the Easter Sunday terrorist attacks.

We welcome the arrests made in connection with the violence, and call on the Government to ensure that the rule of law is upheld and that the law is applied equally to all instigators and perpetrators of communal violence.

Many European countries have experienced terror attacks and hate crimes in recent years. We understand the toll it takes on communities and the possible long-term repercussions such incidents could have on a country's social fabric. Clear leadership as well as the wholesale rejection of hate and violence are of paramount importance. We also note the responsibility of the media and the country's citizens in ensuring that misinformation does not spread and lead to more incidents of violence."
