Air strikes on Libya unacceptable
External Affairs Minister Prof G L Peiris said yesterday in Parliament that the air strikes on the Libyan people cannot be accepted as the strikes have increased together their suffering.
He was responding to an adjournment motion moved by UPFA National list MP A H M Azwer.
Minister Peiris said ties between Libya and Sri Lanka was very strong. “We feel empathy for the people of Libya. The action today has been taken in accordance with a UN Security Council resolution.
But this authority given to them is not an open ended authority but it is restricted. Action should be taken to protect the civilians in Libya. Any action taken beyond this objective is not acceptable. Another matter is that the suffering of the Libyan people should be relieved by these actions. But the question is have those people felt relief as a result of those air strikes.
It has worsened their suffering. I would like to point out that the political relations are crucial at this time. We hope that the Libyan Government will soon come out with a solution to this problem. It should be a fair solution that serves the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Libya.

Hon Peiris is the member of a Government which carried out air strikes on civilians for more than a decade under the guise of eliminating “terrorism”.
Did he at any time, listen to the concerns of interested humanitarian viewpoints that were raised during this genocidal campaign?
American and western wants to grab Libyan resources.
DC has at last come out from the hole he was hiding in, or was it from under the Sinha hama he had covered himself in, as JS?
Let DC and his ilk, including JS, remember The Hon Mahinda Rajapaksa liberated Sri Lanka from the world’s most evil terrorist VP, who terrorised and committed the worst genocide for 30 long years in the North and East to drive out the Sinhalese and the Muslims from their traditional homelands in the so-called ‘ethnic cleansing’, the sanitised Western term for genocide.
As a responsible and brave government, led by the heroic Hon President Mahinda Rajapaksa, The terrorist brute was dispatched to hell with all his fellow LTTE in less than 3 years. No imperial West powers were able to save the evil LTTE despite all their combined efforts and resources. The power of GOD is mightier than any power on earth. GOD defeated the imperial West.
The evil imperial West is now carrying out a regime change in Lybia to ensure the flow of quality Lybian oil to run Western industry. They have invaded Lybian air space and bombarded Lybia with cruise missiles and bombs killing and harming indiscriminately Lybian citizens.
The hypocrites handle Saudi Arabia with kid gloves though the fundamentalist Islamic monarchist SA commits terrible atrocities against its people, who the Saudi royals rule with an iron rod. There is no democracy in SA. No elections. Democratic voice is snuffed out harshly. The hypocritical imperial West supports this in SA to ensure the flow of Saudi oil to the West, but opposes Gaddafi when he fought terrorist organisation in Lybia called the LYBIAN ISLAMIC FIGHTING GROUP sponsored by Al Qaeda. What strange inconsistency!
The imperial West uses double standards.In Lybia they support the terrorist rebels’ democratic voice, but opposes non-terrorist democratic voices of Saudi Arabian and Bahraini citizens.
Demala chela.. Nee po da.. Onaka enna theriyam.? Tht time GL supported 2 get free tamils from BTT( brutal tamil terrorism) here.
If anyone calls terrorists “civilians” he/she got to be a terrorist. DC is fully qualified for that. He can bark till the cows come home but the whole world knows that he is barking in favour of world renowned terrorists.
The world knows very well that terrorists will not call their collegues as terrorists. They will call them something else (well, you have to), like “civilians”, “freedom fighters”, Revolutionist” etc etc just to save their face.
