“In 1971, 1983, 1989 and during the 30 - year long war, our beloved motherland became soaked with enough blood and the mother earth has no more capacity to absorb more blood in the name of any ideology or faith.

I appreciate and highly commend the dedication and commitment of the Army for restoration of peace in the country as well as their energetic contribution to the speedy renovation of devastated Katupitiya St. Jude’s Church and the Zion Church in Batticaloa. The whole Nation admires the services, being rendered by the Army as defenders of the country.”
