President Maithripala Sirisena today said that he will not allow to sign any foreign agreement which is a challenge to the country’s independence and sovereignty with any world power during his tenure.

“Although there are discussions in the society about agreements such as SOFA and Millennium Challenge and a land act which is not suitable to the country, I will leave no room to sign such detrimental agreements,” President Sirisena said.
President made these comments during the concluding programme of “Let’s Stand Together for the Country”Monaragala District Programme held at Bibila Public Ground.

Speaking at the gathering President said when he is taking the lead to eradicate the drug menace which has become a national disaster from this country, politicians as well as the officials have come forward to protect the drug dealers. Innocent children of this country will have to bear the consequences of their unscrupulous acts in few years said the President adding that those who file petitions against the death penalty irrespective of their positions or forms are the dupes of these drug kingpins.

“One cannot ignore the damage caused by the illegal drug trafficking and it has developed to a national disaster because none of the politicians who assumed power in the past did not take actions against the drug dealers for their petty political gains. A considerable drawback can be seen in the drug trafficking due to the stern actions taken against it,” President further said
