Colombo (News 1st): The ambassadors and the representatives of international agencies expressed their fullest support to President Maithripala Sirisena to curb terrorism in Sri Lanka.

Addressing all the ambassadors and high commissioners based in Sri Lanka, resident representatives of United Nations and affiliated organizations and heads of other international agencies at the Presidential Secretariat today the President expressed confidence that terrorism can be curbed soon as the law enforcement agencies have taken swift measures to identify and arrest the criminals responsible for acts of terrorism and aiding and abetting such acts.

He revealed that already eight countries with experience, intelligence skills and high technology capabilities to fight terrorism have assured Sri Lanka that they would provide assistance.

He pointed out that Sri Lankan intelligence experiences gained during the 30-year-old conflict, would be useful to carry out anti-terrorism measures, now that the armed forces could use emergency powers enacted last night.
