Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe in an interview with Indian newspaper acknowledged Pakistan’s support to the war on terror and said that Sri Lanks may seek Islamabad’s help to trace terrorists behind the Easter Sunday attacks.
Wickremesinghe said Pakistan has fully supported Sri Lanka’s war on terror. “If necessary, we will seek their help to trace the terrorists and eliminate them.” “I see this tragic event as further strengthening the trust that exists between our countries and increasing cooperation,” he said.
He dismissed Indian media’s insinuation connecting Pakistan to the bombings. “While we are investigating the possibility of foreign links, there is no evidence yet to suggest any particular country has backed these terrorists,” said Wickremesinghe. “All the countries in our region are faced with the same threats,” he stressed. “Even the best of defences can sometimes be breached by ruthless terrorists, as we have seen time and again, all over the world.”
Its worth mentioning that the Foreign Office has already confirmed that Pakistanis were detained for overstaying visa and not on terror suspicious
