President Maithripala Sirisena has instructed the relevant officials to obtain the assistance of the armed forces in relief operations and as well as in evacuations in flood-prone areas, the President’s Media Division (PMD) said today.

The President has also instructed the officials to take swift measures to provide relief to those who are affected by severe weather conditions.

The President further said he will coordinate the allocations of funds required for these operations.

This was revealed during a meeting held at the Presidential Secretariat today to discuss the prevailing weather conditions in the country.
