LTTE defeat proves terrorism could be eliminated:

Dr. Liam Fox hails Sri Lanka's military victory

British Shadow Defence Secretary Dr. Liam Fox congratulated Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama and the Sri Lankan Government on the military victory against the LTTE terrorist group. This was conveyed to the Minister on the sidelines of the 8th Shangri - La Dialogue in Singapore last week.

Dr. Liam Fox pointed out that the defeat of the LTTE proved to the world that terrorism could be eliminated. Minister Bogollagama briefed Dr. Fox on the Government plans to conduct Local Government elections in the Northern Province and the development of infrastructure in the region. He was also apprised on the situation of the IDPs and the 180 day program by the Government to rehabilitate and resettle them in their original places of habitation.

Present at the meeting was Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa who stated that the infrastructure of the Northern Province could not be developed for the last three decades because the region was under the control of the LTTE. Dr. Fox opined that what Sri Lanka needed was assistance and not be the subject of unsubstantiated and spurious allegations.

Also present at the meeting were the Sri Lankan High Commissioner to Singapore, Ms. Jayathri Samarakone, senior officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Donald Perera.
