Minister Peiris underlines Sri Lanka’s leadership role in Blue Economy

The defeat of terrorism and the advent of peace and stability have brought about significant benefits not only for the people of Sri Lanka but for the whole South Asian region, and it is only right and proper that the magnitude of these benefits should receive recognition, Professor G.L. Peiris, Minister of External Affairs, said in Colombo today (30th June 2014).

He was delivering the keynote address at a symposium on establishing a Centre of Excellence on Ocean Sciences and Environment for the Indian Ocean Rim countries. Sri Lanka’s contribution to the development of the economy in the region far exceeds its size and material resources, the Minister commented.  Pointing out that terrorism is one of the main issues which continue to challenge the economy and wellbeing of many of the countries in the region, he said that Sri Lanka’s success in eradicating terrorism from its shores has had a crucial impact on weakening the forces of destabilization in the entire region and, in particular, on reducing the opportunities for collaboration among terrorist groups active in the area.

Minister Peiris briefs Costa Rican Vice President on Sri Lankan Issues

External Affairs Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris met the Vice-President of Costa Rica Ana Helena Chacon Echeverr on the sidelines of the G77 Summit in Bolivia. The Minister explained that the purpose of the meeting was to update her on developments that have taken place in Sri Lanka since the end of the conflict. Minister Peiris highlighted the disproportionate and intense pressure placed on Sri Lanka by a segment of the international community through the Human Rights Council, which did not acknowledge the achievements despite many challenges.

Minister Peiris requested Costa Rica to form an independent view on the situation in Sri Lanka, and towards helping that process, he invited a representative from Costa Rica to witness the developments that have taken place in the country. The Minister also noted that such a visit had been proposed earlier this year, but had not materialized.
