Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has called for urgent international dialogue on terrorism that must include steps in addressing it effectively.
Wickremesinghe said this in a message sent to Charles Michel, the Prime Minister of Belgium in which he expressed shock over the recent terror attacks that took place in Brussels. Wickremesinghe said that having experienced the horror of terror attacks, Sri Lankans understand well the difficulties faced by the international community concerning atrocities of this nature.
“As always, we have nothing but condemnation for such acts of violence. We believe that this incident highlights the need for an urgent dialogue on terrorism that must include steps in addressing it effectively,” the Prime Minister said.
He added that the thoughts and prayers of all Sri Lankans are with Belgium as the country faces a period of national mourning. (Colombo Gazette)
