Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa invited the people, who make baseless allegations against Sri Lanka, to visit the country and see the peace the masses were enjoying.

The Defence Secretary said so participating in the opening ceremony of Thoppigala Heritage Park at Thoppigala yesterday.

Addressing the media, he said the people who tarnish the good image of the country have to get a clear picture about the achievements of the country after it was liberated from the three decade terrorism.

"The entire country is experiencing peace dividends after the eradication of terrorism, which brought devastation to the whole country. Owing to the peaceful situation achieved after much effort, the Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim people are living in harmony. Hence, without destroying the ethnic harmony and the image of the country making baseless allegations, those engaged in these activities, are duty bound to assist the people-friendly activities of the country," Secretary Rajapaksa said.

He said in line with the overall development drive of the country, the areas subjected to much devastation have been placed on a rapid development track. The Thoppigala Heritage park complex contains educational theatres, a conservation heritage centre, an environment study centre, a souvenir shop and a campsite area among others. A memorial has also been set up to honour those who died while fighting for the country.
