Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa said that the Indo-Sri Lanka relations that date back to the ancient times cannot be shattered by anyone.

The Minister Basil Rajapaksa expressed this view when he participated in the inauguration of a Dabur Lanka fruit juice factory located at Yakadagala Estate, Kotadeniyawa in Mirigama. He stated that the business dealings between the two countries have strengthened more than ever before.

Two billion rupees was spent in the first phase of the plant which is being launched as a BOI project. It is envisaged to produce 280 thousand bottles of fruit juice per day. This will benefit local fruit growers.

    But isn't India doing their best to scuttle the relationship every chance they get? And we still want to suck up to them?

    A little confusion, Sir. Did you say 'friendship' or 'relations'? If it is 'relations' (you did not use the word 'cordial', right?), yes, it cannot be ruined, because as long as Tamil Nadu is there they will not let the Centre to sleep.They will keep the fire burning for ever. So we will have an eternal ralationship. But if it is 'friendship', ha.. ha.. ha.. we know what we are talking about, don't we?
