The search for sustainable peace and prosperity cannot be conducted in isolation from the world Ambassador Dayan Jayatilleka said in a statement.

Speaking at a reception held at Sri Lanka Embassy in Paris on the occasion of the 63rd anniversary of Sri Lanka’s Independence Sri Lanka’s Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to France and Permanent Delegate to UNESCO Dr. Jayatilake said “while Sri Lanka is proud at having emerged victoriously from thirty years of conflict it would only be able to enjoy the liberties such victory and peace bring if we as a nation realize the reasons behind the conflict and act wisely to address such issues through dialogue and on the basis of justice, equality and democracy for all.”

Ambassador Jayatilleka also noted the destruction caused by the recent flooding in Sri Lanka and called on the Sri Lankan community to support efforts underway to provide relief to those affected and rendered homeless.
