Pakistanís military assistance endangers regional security≠ -TNA

[TamilNet, Monday, 19 February 2007, 15:54 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarians Mavai Senathirajah of Jaffna district and Thurairatnasingham of Trincomalle district speaking to media on Monday condemned Pakistanís offer to provide military assistance to Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL). The MPs made the comment when asked about the announcement of arms purchase from Pakistan by Rohitha Bogallama, Minister of foreign affairs on Sunday.

"Interference by Pakistan in the ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka will pose a threat to India in Asian region. The problem in north and east is not terrorism. If Pakistan misinterprets the struggle for self determination as terrorism and provides military assistance to Sri Lanka , GOSL will face serious repercussions. GoSL must stop the military offensive immediately," the MPs said.

Minister Bogollagama returning on Sunday from Pakistan after a two-day visit speaking to newsmen at Katunayake Airport announced that the Government of Pakistan has agreed to cooperate in whatever possible ways to eradicate terrorism in Sri Lanka. The minister also said that Pakistan will also supply arms as well as provide military training to Sri Lanka (SLA) troops.
