NavyIndia and the United States gave intelligence information to the navy to help fight the LTTE at sea, the Government revealed in Parliament today.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said that he obtained intelligence assistance from overseas to defeat the LTTE and former President Chandrika Kumaratunga and also former President Mahinda Rajapaksa continued to obtain such intelligence assistance.

The Prime Minister said that countries like America, China and India helped Sri Lanka a lot during the war.

He said that after 2005 the former Government was determined to defeat the LTTE and began operations in the east.

The Prime Minister said that later the former Government obtained Indian assistance for a resolution at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva were an assurance was given that any human rights abuses said to have been committed during the final stages of the war will be investigated.

Wickremesinghe said the former Government should not have given such an undertaking to the UN and now attempts are being made to correct that mistake.

The Prime Minister also said that the Government will not work against the military but at the same time it will investigate the disappearance of journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda and the murder of journalist Lasantha Wickremetunga.

Military officers have been linked to the disappearance of journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda and the murder of journalist Lasantha Wickremetunga. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. Well known facts. These foreign governments now want their share in the form of contracts and Port city. They didn’t do this due to the love of our people, but to have a economic hold on us. This is international Diplomacy.

  2. We Sinhala have a short memory. We are so ungrateful.
    We had help from the US, EU, Pakistan, India and China to win the war. Our valiant soldiers Executed it well.

    • If smart Sri Lankans weren’t pushing former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to get help from China; the US and India would not have helped the Sri Lankan government to get rid of terrorism. The Rajapaksa family forgot the intellectuals who helped them; that is why they are in this bloody disaster.

  3. Tamils fought for the West and India; eventually, India and the West put an end to Tamils’ stupidity. Tamils fought the Asia’s longest and bloodiest war for nothing. The Westerners and Indians have been using Tamils to achieve the Western and Indian interests. It is very clear that Tamils don’t have the ability to use the foreign powers to move forward. The West and India know how to use the foolish Tamil leaders to eliminate or isolate Tamil intellectuals. The final stage of war in May 2009 wasn’t the worse for Tamils. I believe that the worse is yet to come. Tamil leaders’ foolishness will lead Sri Lanka into to a bloody disaster.

  4. This Fu%#ing idiot Ponil allowed containers full of weapons to Prabakaran to fight against Sri Lankan Forces when he was PM. That is the type of “intelligence assistance he obtained from overseas to defeat the LTTE”. He is doing the same thing now by letting out the Hard Core Terrorists from Prison and putting Sri Lankan Armed forces War Heros in Prison to fulfill the promises he made to LTTE, TNA, India, UK, US and other Western countries in return of the Tamil vote.

  5. This is like the Siyambala story.. soon we’ll find out that, Rajapakse didnt end it then the forces didnt end it then the external forces like the US India UK EU Canada ended it, Paksitan China Russia and others never helped us and hey before you know it there never was a war/conflict!!!

  6. Pravi, You appears awfully naive.
    Article says: ” obtained intelligence assistance from overseas to defeat the LTTE”.

    If not true Chandrika and Mahinda could deny this.

    What are your expert insights into prosecuting a war ?
    Are you a military intelligence officer of some sorts ?

    • Well given the track record of RW, it is not naive to think that RW led UNPers would not betray our forces. Pravi pointed out two examples that RW and RK insulted our armed forces undermining their valiant sacrifices. Not to forget the infamous Millennium city exposure under RW control where many intelligence officers were murdered by the LTTE terrorists.

  7. How does this fool know who helped with ending the war? Remember what he did during the war times ? Thoppigala Kalayak lu, Kilinochchi kiyala madawachchi yanawa…..

    • Pravi, What do you know about the War or what we endured as a nation, during the War?
      Remember the time we went the US, the EU, Canada to Proscribe and Stop the Funding of this Mad LTTE? They did arrest & sever the LTTE Funding.
      Don’t you remember Ukraine gave us their MIG Bomber Pilots?? Don’t be so ungrateful. Be a Proper Sinhala and be a grateful Sri Lankan.
