President Gotabaya Rajapaksa says he will not allow anyone to exert undue pressure on the country’s war heroes or harass them and also assured he will not hesitate to withdraw Sri Lanka from any international body or organization that continuously targets the country and its war heroes using baseless allegations.

He made these comments while delivering a speech during the ceremony held today (19) at the National War Heroes’ Monument in Battaramulla to mark the 11th National War Heroes’ Day. 

“War is not a bed of roses.” Especially, the war heroes had to face numerous bitter experiences and difficulties when battling one of the most ruthless terrorist organizations in the world which did not respect law, he said.
