Proposal to build armoury complex in Oyamaduwa approved

HDEWR80_M4Cabinet has approved a proposal to build an armoury in Oyamaduwa to store weapons and ammunition currently temporarily stored at various locations.

The Government said that during the conflict in the North and East, ammunition and explosives were stored temporarily in various places, and in 2011 the cabinet had approved the construction of an armoury complex which meets international standards in an area with low population.

As it is suitable to store armaments in an area with low population, a proposal made by President Maithripala Sirisena, in his capacity as the Minister of Defense, to build an armoury in the Oyamaduwa area in Anuradhapura which meets international standards, has been approved by the Cabinet of Ministers.
