Washington Embassy marks Remembrance Day

Ambassador Prasad Kariyawasam and staff of the Sri Lanka Embassy in Washington DC and the staff marked Remembrance Day on May 19, by observing a minutes silence followed by a ceremony.

He spoke of the national commemoration of Remembrance Day, which was held in Matara. The significance of this year's commemoration was fostering reconciliation to unite the hearts and minds of the different communities in Sri Lanka. The commemoration was reflective of the Declaration of Peace adopted at Sri Lanka's 67th anniversary of independence on February 4th this year,.

The Ambassador spoke about what President Maithripala Sirisena said at the national commemoration in Matara that the Government's policy is 'development and reconciliation', observing that "we cannot fulfill our expectations for reconciliation only through development. The reconciliation process primarily includes truth, seeking justice, eliminating fear and mistrust, building trust among the communities and rebuilding destroyed physical infrastructure. Hence, with the experiences of the war, we must understand the utmost need for a reconciliation process."
