President Rajapaksa denounces terrorist attack in Xinjiang

President Mahinda Rajapaksa has sent a message to his Chinese counterpart President Xi Jinping, condemning the terrorist attack targeting civilians at a railway station in Urumqi, capital of China’s northwest Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region last Wednesday (30th April 2014).

The text of the message is as follows:

His Excellency Xi Jinping

President of the People's Republic of China

Your Excellency,

On behalf of the Government and the people of Sri Lanka, I vehemently denounce the terrorist attack at a railway station in Urumqi. Clearly, the perpetrators of this cowardly attack had targeted innocent civilians, a large number whom have been injured. Attacking unarmed civilians demonstrates the cruel and barbaric nature of terrorism. 


A comprehensive briefing was provided for Ambassadors and High Commissioners accredited to Sri Lanka, at the Ministry of External Affairs, on Thursday, 24th April 2014 by Professor G.L. Peiris, Minister of External Affairs, with the assistance of Major General K.H.G. Hendawitharana, representing the Ministry of Defence and Urban Development.

The principal purpose of the briefing was to give the diplomatic community authentic information regarding action taken by the government against groups and individuals involved in terrorist funding and other activity connected with plans to revive terrorism.

The Minister said that the government’s action in designating 16 groups and 424 individuals had been taken under United Nations Security Council Regulation1373 which not only empowered governments to resort to such measures but imposed on States an imperative duty to effectively suppress terrorist funding. Regulations had been framed for this purpose under Sri Lankan legislation, and timely action has been taken on the basis of these Regulations, he said.

Prof. Peiris told the diplomatic community that there is compelling evidence regarding the remittance of substantial sums of money from overseas for planned terrorist activity.  As a result of extensive investigations in recent weeks, the government is aware of the sources of this funding in several instances and the bank accounts into which the money had been paid.  65 arrests have been made, and 19 persons have been released after questioning.
