May 01, Colombo: A delegation of senior military officers of Pakistan Army, Navy, and Air Force from National Defence University (NDU) of Pakistan visited Sri Lanka on a study tour from April through May 01.
The Pakistani military team headed by Air Commodore Nadeem Anjum of Pakistan Air Force was here to learn about the anti-insurgency operations conducted by the Sri Lankan Army against the LTTE.
The visiting delegation met the Army Commander Lieutenant General Jagath Jayasuriya Tuesday (27) morning at Army Headquarters and had discussions on bilateral interests and explored possibilities of further promoting healthy relations between Sri Lanka Army and Pakistan Defence Services.
The delegates were keen to learn more about recently concluded Wanni Humanitarian Operations and how it was brought to a successful completion, the Army said.
The Pakistani delegation held talks with Sri Lanka's Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa yesterday and discussed the security challenges in both countries.
Pakistan, a strong ally of the United States is waging war-on-terror against the anti-Western forces fueled by the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. Suicide attacks by Islamic extremists are in the forefront as 1,018 people have been killed in 2009 in about 80 suicide attacks.
Sri Lankan forces last May successfully ended the 30-year long Tamil Tiger terrorism in the island vanquishing all the senior terrorist leaders in a major offensive that lasted over two years.
The Pakistani military delegation's six-day visit to Sri Lanka concluded today.
