Sinhalese should unite to fight the Tigers- Monks Front

[TamilNet, Friday, 02 June 2006, 01:41 GMT]
"Japanese peace envoy, Yasushi Akashi, has limited knowledge of the history of Sri Lanka and that is why he says Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers cannot defeat the Tigers. Interference of international community prevented as from prosecuting a full intensity war against the Tigers in the past. We should not betray our country for the sake of foreign aid," said Ven. Dambara Amila Thero, head of National Buddhist Monks Front, presiding a meeting convened at the Bandaranaiyake Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH) in Colombo Wednesday evening, sources in Colombo said.

"We welcome the EU ban on the Tigers but the statement issued by the co-chair countries is dangerous. The ban on Tigers will not solve Sri Lanka's problems. And we should not invite the foreign forces to solve our problem.

"People in Sri Lanka should unite and fight the Tigers. Only then we can save Sri Lanka from the Tigers," the leading Buddhist monk said.
