Answering a question about the ending of the war, Wickremasinghe said that there were different views about war and he could have ended the war in a different way.

He added that the President Mahinda Rajapaksa wanted to end the war somehow and some political and humanitarian aspects were not focused during the process.

Pointing out that the President had promised UN Secretary General to allow a probe regarding war, the Opposition Leader said if internal systems in the country were strong, Sri Lanka would have been able to face international pressures and the hold its own investigation under the law of state.
