Apr 14, 2015 (LBO) – Sri Lanka’s new rulers should offer continued support for the ongoing UN investigation, British Prime Minister David Cameron said in his Sinhala –Tamil New Year message.
“When I met with President Sirisena at Downing Street last month I offered my support for the steps his government has begun to take to address the issues of the past,”
“But I was also clear that the government must go further and that they must continue to offer full support to the ongoing UN investigation,”
“I hope that this New Year will bring communities closer together in helping to heal the wounds of the past,” Cameron said.
Adding to that, Cameron said,“I would like to send my best wishes to everyone in Britain, Sri Lanka and around the world celebrating Aluth Avurudda and to all Tamil communities celebrating Puthandu today. It’s a time when millions of people will be coming together with families, friends and neighbours to celebrate their new year,”
“But it is also a time to remember the fantastic contribution Tamil and Sinhalese communities make to Britain,”
“We see it around us, every single day – in our schools and our hospitals, in the arts and businesses – you play an incredibly important and positive role,”
“To everyone celebrating Puthandu and Aluth Avurudda I wish you a very happy and prosperous new year.”
