    Sri Lanka is the only country in the world that was able to destroy the terrorists,so why we need Interpol to come and tell us how to tackle terrorism.This government is so stupid.

    In Europe we don't consider the Interpol as an important agency,even though it is head quartered in France it is mainly made up of Asians and Africans.It is a third worldstuff.
