Sri Lanka says extremists groups from Pakistan have not had any kind of training in Sri Lanka. The dismissal came from Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa to reports from a member of the Lakshar-e-Taiba terrorist outfit that he was trained in Colombo.

There are no extremist groups operating in Sri Lanka, Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa told Daily Mirror online in response to the claims.

The External Affairs Ministry had said yesterday that Sri Lanka is in touch with the Indian authorities over claims by the Lakshar-e-Taiba terror suspect that he was trained in Colombo to carry out terrorist attacks on Indian soil.

The Defence Attache at the Sri Lankan High Commission in New Delhi is already in discussions with the Indian Defence Authorities and a comprehensive report over the issue has been sought by the External Affairs Ministry in Colombo, External Affairs Ministry sources had told Daily Mirror online.

    Wasantha Friday, 10 September 2010 07:44 AM

    This matter is connected to the US state department request from India to submit a special report ,how Sri Lankan politics would affect the region. Need to handle the matter tactfully.

    How could he categorically deny this? Gota does not know everything going on in the country. Didn't one guy who is caught in India say he was trained in Colombo? That is how this allegation came about. Why not wait for a full inquiry and have the facts before jumping to conclusions. India has suffered numerous attacks on its soil from the Lakshar-e-Taiba terrorist group.

    Oh! for goodness sake what wont they stop at to tarnish the name of Sri Lanka and the People of Sri Lanka.

    Forget about this training accusation which is a lie but what about America funding Iraq, Iran and Lebanon at various times at different stages to stage war with each other. What about the NATO involvement? What about the Innocent people killed in Iraq and presently in Afghanistan and Pakistan?

    These guys must shut up and let us grow in peace. I believe this is the wish of all of our people. Is there nothing that we can do as Citizens jointly.

    pm Friday, 10 September 2010 08:01 AM

    Yes i also think this another conspiracy of India to destabilize SL.

    Rim Friday, 10 September 2010 08:57 AM

    A PURE INDIAN CONSPIRACY

    Anver Saturday, 11 September 2010 01:13 AM

    The allegation must be thoroughly investigated. If LeT people were trained HERE, then by WHOM and WHERE?

    Tm Abay Friday, 10 September 2010 09:33 AM

    India will and should get their share of problems for training terrorists to kill inocent Sri Lankans.

    Hussein Friday, 10 September 2010 10:07 AM

    Is it because Sri Lanka is the miracle of Asia?
    Is it because Sri Lanka is an economic giant?
    Is it because Sri Lankan people are the most friendly people on planet Earth?

    mnsmart Friday, 10 September 2010 05:33 AM

    indians are trying to find a way in to interfere with sri lankan internal affairs after the war. sir please don't give in to those.

    Saradial Saturday, 11 September 2010 03:55 AM

    Lakshar-e-Taiba terror suspect - produced by RAW?
    Well said Mr. Gota

    andy Friday, 10 September 2010 06:14 AM

    The only thing I am confident about is that Gota will not budge. He will have to walk the tight rope until this blows over but he will never bend over.
    This is an Indian conspiracy to increase their influence over us since they are scared that China is getting too close to Sl for their liking. Since they don't have as much money to give us as China they are resorting to the hardball tactics that they have been using for decades.

    sincere citizen Friday, 10 September 2010 10:35 AM

    Even the Iron man Saddam Hussain couldnt resist, people who made all the noise will realise the fact, it is not easy to go against the super powers like USA or the regional power India. They can make or break.

    Suresh Friday, 10 September 2010 06:49 AM

    well we owe a favour to India for training you know who. So this is how we return the favour.

    Kadiya Friday, 10 September 2010 11:31 AM

    This is the last thing we need now. But we should be on our guard.
