The International Chamber of Commerce Sri Lanka (ICCSL) the National Committee of the Paris based world’s largest business chamber strongly condemns the cowardly acts against innocent civilians. ICC Paris Secretary General John Denton through the ICCSL Chairman Dinesh Weerakkody extends his deep regret over the Easter Sunday terror attacks that claimed over 300 precious lives and sends his sympathies to all the affected people and their loved ones and families.

After 10 years of peace in the country, it is profoundly sad that the country had to experience such horrific acts of violence. It is important for the authorities to bring to justice all the perpetrators involved. We as a business chamber will assist our members in these trying times with any assistance that is required. We also urge the communities to be united and not be misled with malicious and false information.

ICCSL through its network of Chambers globally stands ready to support the Government in its efforts to communicate to the international community that Sri Lanka is resilient in the face of such terror attacks and has overcome similar challenges in the past. We must not let this hamper the development process and the progress of the private sector which is the engine of growth of the country.

ICC Sri Lanka requests the Government to take steps to ensure the future safety and security of all Sri Lankans and the security of facilities at all times.
