Forces armed to fight 'Light Aircraft' syndrome - Minister

Mass Media and Information Minister and Cabinet spokesman Anura Priyadharshana Yapa asserted that he strongly believed that the Armed Forces have now got into the right track of successfully combating the LTTE's 'Light Aircraft' syndrome.

Replying to a query from a journalist at the weekly Cabinet press briefing at the Government Information Department Auditorium at Narahenpita yesterday, as to the failure of the Forces to attack the so-called 'Light Aircraft' of the LTTE once again, Minister Yapa pointed out that utilising light aircrafts for these tasks were highly unusual in the world, and therefore overwhelming them completely was an arduous task.

He reiterated however that the Forces have not failed. They have destroyed one aircraft about a month ago. He said he was aware that the Forces have done an extensive research on the matter.

They have now successfully ventured into the correct mode and approach of having full control over such a situation in the future. "Let's think positively," Minister Yapa added.
