The government today said it was glad that the Indian government rejected the claim made by Prime Minister D. M. Jayaratne that there were three LTTE training camps in Tamil Nadu.
“The denial of the existence of LTTE camps in Indian soil strengthened the friendship between the two countries,” Youth Affairs and Skills development Minister Dullas Alahapperuma said.
“The incorrect statement made by Prime Minister Jayaratna was a closed chapter as he himself has made a statement accepting the mistake,” he added. (Sandun. A. Jayasekera)
