|Monday, 01 December 2008|
COLOMBO: Condemning the deadly terror strike in Mumbai, Sri Lankan foreign minister Rohitha Bogollagama on Friday said militant groups such as LTTE provide ideas and methodology for undertaking such attacks.
"Methodology and well-coordinated precision of these savage attacks are reminiscent of the terror tactics employed by the LTTE against innocent civilians and vital infrastructure in Sri Lanka," Bogollagama told the parliament.
"I have no doubt in my mind that the terrorist groups the world over, study and mimic the modus operandi of each other and to cause maximum death and destruction," he said.
"We in Sri Lanka are all too familiar with the stark reality of the cruel hand of LTTE terrorism which has been responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians over the last 25 years," the minister told the house.
He also welcomed US President-elect Barack Obama's message, wherein he had stated "the United States must continue to strengthen our partnerships with India and nations around the world to root out and destroy terrorist networks".
