The Sri Lankan government has commended the statement made by US Assistant Secretary of State Robert O Blake that the Prabhakaran and Bin Laden were two of the most dangerous terrorists in the world.

In an interview with the state owned radio Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva has said that “this clarifies America’s position regarding terrorism.”

Mr. Blake is currently on a visit to Sri Lanka and yesterday he met the media in Colombo. Asked if the death of Osama Bin Laden was treated differently to that of Prabhakaran by the US government, Mr. Blake stressed that both Prabakaran and Bin Laden will ‘go down in history’ as the most ruthless terrorist leaders.

‘Certainly Osama has more directly targeted the US so his capture has been a particular priority to us, so his death marks one of the most significant accomplishment in our decades long fight against Al Queida,” he said.

“Prabakaran was also responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent Sri Lankans and the US was one of the first countries to stand with Sri Lanka to designate the LTTE as a terror organization, and we consistently supported all efforts against the LTTE.”

    The fact is when USA gets poor, countries like ours will be poorer.

    spark Friday, 06 May 2011 03:54 AM

    Yes he will, because he does not work in the same way as the Rajapakse group.

    malkanthi Friday, 06 May 2011 04:35 AM

    Not only civilians, Prabakaran killed the Cream of sri lankan politicos, as a result we are having such a vacuum today in the political arena.

    MagodisThuma Thursday, 05 May 2011 12:40 PM

    Compared to Pabakaran Bin Laden is a saint !

    MagodisThuma Thursday, 05 May 2011 12:42 PM

    Osama bin Laden killed only 10000 Prabakaran killed directly & indirectly more than 150000 !

    I think most knew this was the case. I am glad that US accepts the similarity and hope they will withdraw the labelling and hypocrisy behind all that is waged towards Sri Lanka.

    Now, where would the Hon Prime Minister put his face? He talks something completely different; senility?

    Yehiya-Doha Thursday, 05 May 2011 01:36 PM

    They try to trap the Prime Minister & Mr. Rathnasiri giving wrong information. But they are very experience in politics. Both are very good with minorities & very fair politicians.

    S.Sriranjan Thursday, 05 May 2011 01:36 PM

    kalawedda Thursday, 05 May 2011 01:52 PM

    US must learn that their power cannt retain forever. someday, they will be like poor asians. so it is better to act in a frendly manner with all countries

    Appu Thursday, 05 May 2011 02:16 PM

    Yes, there were countless human right violations in Sri Lanka becuase people like you funded Prabakaran for that. At least that era was over for now and we are moving forward.
