Commander Security Forces - Jaffna (SF-J) Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe on Friday (03.06.2011) briefed the present situation in Jaffna to a team of foreign senior military officers on their one day visit to Jaffna.

Subsequent to the three-day International Defence Symposium organized by the Sri Lanka Army in Colombo, Indian-based Defence Attachés representing 16 countries including Sri Lanka arrived in Jaffna to get first hand knowledge on the present situation in post-conflict Jaffna.

Having presented a profile on Jaffna to visiting foreign tri service senior officers, Maj. Gen. Hathurusinghe gave a detail account of activities that were augmented by the Sri Lankan government and the Army to ensure the civilians’ life in Jaffna safe and comfortable.

Commander SF-J described how the troops in Jaffna are working closely with civil community towards regaining the former glory of the city implementing various projects. Army’s involvement in government’s development work, programmes initiated by the Security Forces Headquarters - Jaffna to uplift livelihood, education, economy, shelter and health of people in the peninsula were among the important subjects that drew attention of the delegation during their meeting with SF-J Commander.

Defence Attachés from Czech Republic, Ukraine, Kenya, Tanzania, Poland, Oman, Nigeria, Maldives, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Ghana, China, Japan, India and Philippines were astounded to learn the progress of accelerated de-mining process for early resettlement in the peninsula and were concerned to know about early establishment of civil administration in Jaffna. They were pleased to understand that economy in Jaffna is flourishing with Gross Domestic Product increasing due to viable situation in Jaffna and facilities provided by the government after ushering of peace.

They visited several places in Jaffna such as the public library, old Dutch Fort and famous Nallur temple, and other areas where socio-cultural and economic development is currently taking place.
