President calls on Asian leaders to unite against outside interference

President Maithripala Sirisena today called on Asian leaders to unite against outside interference.

Addressing the Fifth Summit of Heads of State of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) in Dushnabe in Tajikistan, the President said that Asian countries must not allow outside powers to suppress the power of Asia.

He said the Asian region, as the forerunner of the next century, should be strong and powerful in every aspect.

“At this gathering I especially request not to damage and interfere in the sovereignty of the countries because of allegations of human rights violations,” the President said.

He said that freedom and democracy are indispensable features of every country and any effort to influence and intimidate free nations is not acceptable in any way.

President Sirisena also pointed out that cooperation among nations is essential to face the challenge of terrorism.

“Peace plays a vital role in alleviating poverty too. As much as peace is essential to win the battle against poverty, defeating terrorism is imperative in order to ensure equal economic prosperity for every citizen,” he said. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. You are the President who did not anticipate the outside interference, and systematically disabled the Sri Lankan intelligence network to please the foreign powers in the name of democracy and human rights. I believe that justice will prevail and you will face the music for disabling the Sri Lankan intelligence network, meantime enjoy preaching to the world. Trust me, time will come former President Mahinda Rajapaksa will send you specially made hoppers to you while you are locked up in a prison.

  2. You have set the wrong precedence by joining with the foreign powers and betraying the Sri Lankan leaders who have real political experience. If we do nothing we are indirectly encouraging others to do the same. Therefore, we take this matter very seriously, and we will deal with it appropriately.

  3. If SriLankan wants to stop the blood baths, it must start to punish the politicians who do the wrong things. High time for the Sri Lankan media to educate the people so they become knowledgeable citizens to make meaningful decisions. I urge the Sri Lankan media to come out from the corrupt and foolish politicians’ shadow and do the right thing to create a safe and
    prosperous nvironment for themselves and for their future generations.
