Deputy Leader of the United National Party Minister Sajith Premadasa says no enemy force will be allowed to threaten or intimidate the country.

Speaking at a rally at the Wills Grounds in Badulla the Minister said he is devoted to protecting the country’s sovereignty.

He stressed there is no room or place for terrorism in the country, adding he can fearlessly state that terrorism and terrorists will both be eradicated without fail.

The UNP Deputy Leader further stressed that we must investigate how terrorism and extremism is created and who the conspirators of such plots are.

He said the government will secure the country’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and political freedom and will never allow enemy forces to destroy, separate and threaten the country.

Minister Sajith Premadasa also commented on the need to ensure that all citizens enjoy the benefits of development.

He stated it must be ensured that everyone benefits from development, adding a single faction or group reaping benefits and concessions is unacceptable.

Therefore he revealed that a new economic journey that will enable over six million families living in the country to attain victory, will be introduced.
