The Sri Lanka army says Sri Lanka could be the only country which has experienced and overcame all waves of terrorism.
Major General Udaya Perera, speaking on the final day of the Defence Seminar in Colombo today, noted that the international community should come together to prevent the 5th wave of terrorism in the offing since contours of terrorism have changed their facets in the course of the past century.
Presenting his views under ‘Changing Contours of Terrorism and Security Challenges’ Perera feared that next threat of terrorism would emanate from ‘Clash of Civilizations’ as what is being witnessed today at global sphere.
“The terrorism converts itself into different waves, lately ‘Ethnicity and Religion’ and in the past it was Marxism, Colonialism, etc. History appears to be repeating. What we now see is the clash of civilization, like what we experienced in the past,” Major General Udaya Perera quipped saying that Sri Lanka could be the only country which has experienced and overcame all these waves of terrorism.
