The Government says it will need sophisticated technology to face the threat from global terrorism.
Speaking in Parliament today, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said that Sri Lanka will never be safe from international terrorism.
He said that Sri Lanka must work with the international community to face the global threat from terrorism.
“Some assume working with the international community means bringing down foreign troops. That will not happen,” he said.
The Prime Minister said that Sri Lanka needs sophisticated technology to face the threat posed by global terror networks.
Wickremesinghe was speaking in Parliament during a debate on the current security situation in the country.
He said that all those directly linked to the Easter Sunday attacks were either killed or are in custody.
The Prime Minister said that investigations had revealed the bombers had direct or indirect links with Islamic State.
Wickremesinghe called on all communities to join hands to be united and take the country forward. (Colombo Gazette)
