JHU General Secretary and Minister of Power and Energy Patali Champika Ranawaka said that all foreign expert panels or committees have proven that Sri Lanka had not exceeded the accepted international parameters in warfare when fighting the war.

“The US State Department recently in a media briefing demanded us to produce a report on the war and some wanted us to provide the facts before the September 21 UN General Assembly meeting,” he said.

“While the US accuses us of war crimes, Wikileaks with its accounts of Iraq Logs from US cables, proved that thousands of civilians were killed during operations in Iraq,” he added.

“The West is facing major difficulties today owing to uprisings by far right-wingers since the attacks in Norway,” he said.

“The US threat of economic sanctions would not hold water now as the US itself is gradually plunging into a major economic mess with debts running to trillions of dollars,” he noted.

“Therefore we tell the United States not to disrupt the peaceful environment the people live in following the defeat of the LTTE. We helped the US by vanquishing the LTTE as the Tigers were maintaining strong links with the terrorist outfits that now pose a threat to the US,” Minister Ranawaka said. (By Supun Dias)
