‘Wijedasa’s statement is not govt’s viewpoint - Rajitha

The recent statement in parliament by minister Wijedasa Rajapaksa with regard to Sri Lankans having joined the IS is not the viewpoint of the government, said cabinet spokesman Rajitha Senaratne.

Senaratne told the cabinet news briefing today (23) that state security reports indicated no Sri Lankan having connections with the IS, or any IS activist having conducted lectures in Sri Lanka.
