DIALOGUE WITH THE SRI LANKAN DIASPORA
Mt. Lavinia Hotel -28th March 2009
Dr. Palitha T.B. Kohona,
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you at this crucial point in the history of Sri Lanka. As you all know, the moment is near when we shall see the results of the supreme sacrifices made by our valiant security forces in liberating our brothers and sisters in the North of Sri Lanka from the terror’s grasp. All the communities of Sri Lanka have started to sense and feel the true spirit of freedom, absence of fear and the joy of living that was not theirs’ during the last three decades. You are here to herald a new era in our history.
