27 March 2021 11:41 pm - 15     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


President Gotabaya Rajapaksa said the government would face the Geneva issue without any fear, claiming that Sri Lanka is an independent country.
He said this while participating in the "Gama Samaga Pilisndara, programme in Pitabeddara in Matara yesterday.
He said Sri Lanka would not fall prey to the power struggle in the Indian Ocean.
The President also said national security of the country was put into risk due to the ignorant actions of the previous regime and adding that the Easter Sunday attack was a result of that.
"War heroes were jailed on false allegations. Sovereignty of the country was put into risk by co-sponsoring the Geneva resolution," he said.

    You won't be saying that once sanctions are imposed. All tough talk will disappear when sanctions start to bite.

    Of course you are fearless but the country which you are supposed to safeguard has to pay the price . That is what you need to understand.

    No one said Sri Lanka is NOT an independent country but you. Stop rubbish talks and get the system in order.

    Dole and NGO kakkos are upset when there is a upright leader in the country. They prefer Yahapanan type infighting non-government
