Israel's assistance to Lanka appreciated

Sri Lanka appreciated the assistance from Israel, particularly during the war against terrorism and for the rehabilitation of IDPs. Israel's assistance to Sri Lanka for rehabilitation and reconstruction in the aftermath of the tsunami in December 2004 was also remarkable, said Senior Minister S.B. Navinne at the celebrations to mark the 63rd Independence Day of Israel in Colombo last week.

The Minister said the excellent relations between Sri Lanka and Israel have expanded in the field of agriculture technology, labour migration and defence.

The recent visit to Sri Lanka by the Israel Agriculture Minister had led to the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with regard to cooperation on agriculture and other biological projects. He said it was a pleasure to represent the Government of Sri Lanka at the celebrations.

Ambassador for Israel in India and Sri Lanka Mark Sofer said, "During times of trouble in Sri Lanka, we were there with you.

Thereafter, we are helping to build a new society after years of terror in the country. Some of the areas that we are in Sri Lanka are dairy farming along with a number of European countries which are active here". Cows in Israel produce 30-40 litres of milk a day.

Some of that technology can be transferred immediately through public-private interaction. We are already in areas such as water management, telecommunications and medical sector," he said.

The Honorary Consul of Israel in Sri Lanka Wicky Wikramatunga proposed the vote of thanks.
