To use heavy weapons on NFZ:
Was it UNP policy?
Was it the policy of the UNP that heavy weapons should be used in the
No Fire Zone in the North as stated by Puttalam district Parliamentarian
Range Bandara recently.
The UNP should explain to the public and the international community
whether his statement reflected the UNP policy, Media Minister Lakshman
Yapa Abeywardene said at a press conference held at his Ministry
The policy of the Government was clear, it stopped the use of heavy
weapons as it had to protect the civilians held hostage by the LTTE.
Whether the international community asked us or not the Government
protected and safeguarded the Tamil civilians as they were citizens of
our country, he noted.
