Tell the world the real situation in Sri Lanka – President urged the Sri Lankan expatriates

London, 14 May, ( President Mahinda Rajapaksa speaking to Sri Lanka Freedom Party supporters in London yesterday, said that it is the due responsibility of all patriotic Sri Lankans to convey to the international community the real situation in Sri Lanka as the LTTE is carrying an international false propaganda campaign distorting the image of the nation.

He emphasized that terrorism should be defeated irrespective of political agendas represented by each and every one.

President Rajapaksa also informed the Sri Lankan expatriates in London of the initiatives taken by his Government towards sustainable development of the country and measures taken to ensure democracy to the people who were deprived that right due to LTTE intimidation for many decades.

The President is scheduled to address the Oxford Union today on the topic of “Strategy towards Empowering the Rural Economy of Sri Lanka”.

President Rajapaksa will be the first Sri Lankan Head of State and Sri Lankan statesman who has not previously held office in the Oxford Union to address it as a guest speaker. The last distinguished Sri Lankan who addressed the Oxford Union was former Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar.
