Any military strike on Iran would bring about a third world war, Minister Construction and Common Amenities Wimal Weerawansa said today assuring that Sri Lanka is ready to face any consequence of it.

Addressing a public ceremony in Kaduwala today Minister Weerawansa said Sri Lanka is ready for any consequence of an international conflict including a food shortage.

Minister explained that it would be obvious that countries such as China and Russia would get involved in an event there is a military strike in Iran. He said a dangerous situation would arise in such a situation. “Sri Lanka would also be affected in such a situation, “he said stressing the need for making the country self sufficient,” he said.

He said there have been discussions on a possible food shortage while the Europe and the West becoming more and more alarmed over such a shortage. Mr. Weerawansa said the objective of the government is to avert a food shortage in the future. (Yohan Perera)

    Sir, you should read the news conference of Canadian defense minister, and defense secretary of US before making any comments. The world is trying to cut head instead of cutting the tail.
