President has observed that co-existence is the core of the country’s future. The President was sapeking at the national ceremony held at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH) Friday to mark the completion of one year of the democratic governance under his leadership.
During his speech, he said:
’In the task of building the modern Sri Lankan state it is essential to bring about the national reconciliation and the unity among the communities in this country by leaving off the mistrust and suspicion among them. The 19th Amendment set the basis for good governance. These are not things that can be held or felt in the stomach but they are essential to promote the honour of humanity. Co existence and reconciliation are at the core of Sri Lanka’s future. Special emphasis to the Constitution building process that will begin today with parliament sitting as a Constitutional Assembly.
