President stresses need for vigilance in national security

Meeting with US Asst. Secretary Boucher

COLOMBO: President Mahinda Rajapaksa who explained the prevailing security situation in Sri Lanka to the US Assistant Secretary of State Ambassador Richard Boucher yesterday, stressed on the need to be vigilant in the interests of national security.

At the meeting with Ambassador Boucher at Temple Trees earlier yesterday, President Rajapaksa said he sought the help of the International Community to resolve the Sri Lanka conflict and achieve peace, a media release from the President Secretariat stated.

During discussions on matters regarding Human Rights, the President told Ambassador Boucher that the Government was doing its best to ensure that there were no Human Rights violations and that all reports of Human Rights violations were looked into.

The US Assistant Secretary of State was also told that the Government fully supported the work of the Ministry for Human Rights, the Human Rights Commission and various other institutions and commissions of inquiry set up to probe any violations of Human Rights and take remedial measures.

“During discussions on the SLFP’s proposals for Constitutional Reform, President Rajapaksa explained the rationale behind these proposals to Ambassador Boucher. The President said the final proposals for Constitutional Reform would come from the All Party Representative Committee, which would comprise the basis for further Constitutional Reform,” the release stated.
