Army Commander Shavendra Silva today urged the troops to be ready to face any internal or external threats.

Addressing all the ranked staff of the army at a brief ceremony to commence the work of the New Year at the new Army Headquarters, the Commander said that the army should determine to attach the highest degree of priority to the enforcement of National Security needs at all times while being prepared to face any internal or external threats upon receipt of proper training and continued exercises.

He also commended the troops for rendering an exceptional role of duty after the culmination of Humanitarian Operations. The Commander said that the Army is currently engaged in the national development process giving its professional expertise while strengthening the component of sustainable peace.

“All Sri Lankans are well aware that you all serving a dignified organization and are supporting humanitarian needs going beyond the call of your duty and the mandate. This was once again re-endorsed during the most recent natural disasters that occurred with torrential rains across the country, for which all of you responded swiftly and responded accordingly by restoring normalcy in those areas,” Lt. Gen. Silva said.

He also recalled sacrifices made by fallen War Heroes, injured War Heroes and those who contributed to the Humanitarian Operations before May 2009 and wished their families best of luck for the New Year.

He also called upon all of them to sustain the good image the Army has earned to-date and pursued future roles with the highest standards of professionalism and discipline.

All Senior Officers including Deputy Chief of Staff, hundreds of Officers and Other Ranks serving in the Army HQ were present during the brief ceremony. (Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)
