Fri, Mar 28, 2014, 08:07 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 28, Colombo: A minister of the Sri Lankan government says that military personnel stationed in the Northern Province will not be withdrawn.

National Freedom Front (NFF) Leader, Minister Wimal Weerawansa told a news conference that the government will not withdraw the military from the North regardless of whether the LTTE is active in the area or not.

He rejected the statement by Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran that the government was trying to build a fear psychosis among people of a resurgence of the LTTE.

Weerawansa said the government has no necessity to create a fear psychosis and that it will not hesitate to station military personnel and camps in strategically important places.

The Minister has pointed out that the world is divided into two - some countries supportive of the resolution on Sri Lanka and the others against it.

Weerawansa has added that the division can be seen in society as well as within the government.
