The international community must now help to rebuild the whole island and most investors would be happy to be here to assist the Sri Lankan government.

Speaking to the Asian Tribune he said LTTE has no international recognition due to their dangerous activities specially the extreme violation of human rights. Most of countries have banned the LTTE and its a lonely organization.

Mr. Deva said the government of Sri Lanka now has opportunities to obtain international support to develop its northern province which was under the LTTE control. He also congratulated the government of Sri Lanka and said the government has a legitimate right to defeat terrorism and bring peace to the masses and all the peoples of the Island.

He explained that even after a 25 year old long battle the LTTE terrorists they could not win the hearts of the masses and there is no state in the world formed by terrorists. He gave international examples about terrorists groups and said the British government ended the Irish conflict and today the European Union is a good example of how former enemies who killed each other in the millions are now working as friends in one common union with one parliament.

The military action must go towards a permanent peace and this can only be achieved by eliminating terrorism while addressing the political aspirations all the peoples of the island by ensuring equality of opportunity and equity under democracy and the rule of law for everybody.
