President Mahinda Rajapaksa today said that his government was quite capable of dealing with any pressure that comes from Geneva, New York or Washington.

Addressing a gathering of public servants in Colombo the President said that public servants and heads of corporations should ensure good governance to improve the image of the country internationally.

Referring to the current challenges before the country, he said such challenges were not new. He recalled that the government had been able to face up to and overcome tremendous pressure from the time it declared its commitment to a unitary state. It was able to take the message of unity against foreign pressure. It was able to face challenges such as fuel price increases, the closure of banks due to the international financial crisis, and, most importantly, the major threat of terrorism.

We were able to overcome these through the policy of on-alignment. We will remain non-aligned and therefore we can declare that we will not waver in our policies whatever pressures we have to face, he said.

    Pressure is NOT from cities BUT it is from UN an organiztion of of 193 Countries to which Sri Lanka too is a member. So get out of it give statements like this?

    Please refuse the loan from the IMF and face this pressure also. Empty anti-white statements alone wont do.
    If you want to isolate Sri Lanka from the rest of the world, go ahead and see what it will bring.

    Bigfoot Monday, 02 April 2012 05:48 PM

    I am confused. You should have told this to the UN in Geneva and not to a set of government servants. This is just playing to the masses.

    Good one sir, in 2009 war came to and end not because of international pressure. Prize of easenatal items going up in sir lanka not because of international pressure, Prize of fuel going up in Sri Lanka not because of international pressure, LLRC is pass in UN not because of international pressure. Now what is the pressure Sri Lanka is having?

    Dr.Ravi Mohan-USA Monday, 02 April 2012 06:01 PM

    who cares....Crime is crime...that have to face...Most our beloved nearest friendly-nation India also finally said Sorry for MR...So what else more. Not only fuel everything is creased by the government day by day unwantedly.... So the war crime is not the matter for increasing of cost of live....Actually saying its the best time to cut down the cost of living. Bcos country is going wihtout a war....All world knows....

    Undoubtedly MR is the best out of the leaders who ruled our country as of today. We should appreciate his courageous leadership qualities. We should also condemn this USA lead resolution, regardless of its affects on our country. We should not leave any room for any foreign intervention, under the pretext of human rights violations, to resolve our own problems. It is high time to understand the hypocrite and double standard face of the USA and India. These two Satanic Nations never backed us or extended sincere assistance towards us, unless it serve their own sinister interests.

    Marikkar Monday, 02 April 2012 06:30 PM

    At this time of urgency, it is the duty of all Sri Lankans, irrespective of creed cast and religion to back our Brave President who bestowed upon us the Genuine Peace, by wiping out the most cruel terrorist organization that prevailed on the surface of this earth, to ensure our country is safe from all sort of tortures and violations. We are confident that the Satanic Moves of these two evil forces (USA and India) will not harm us as long as the Almighty God's blessings are showered upon our Mother Lanka and our Great President MR is in power.
