State Minister of Defence, Ruwan Wijewardene, who assumed duties today, assured he would fulfil his duties by ensuring and safeguarding the country’s sovereignty and security.

Mr. Wijewardene said foreign training would be provided to Sri Lankan military personnel so as to keep them updated on the latest defence techniques.

He said he would also focus on enhancing the welfare of the security forces whose valiant efforts had helped eradicate LTTE terrorism and thus protect Sri Lanka and its people.

Mr. Wijewardene thanked the voters of Biyagama and the Gampaha District whose unstinting support had helped him become a state minister.
