New Lankan ambassador presents credentials to the King of Norway

Career diplomat E. Rodney M. Perera, the new Sri Lanka Ambassador to the Kingdom of Norway, presented his credentials to Harald V, the King of Norway at the Royal Palace in Oslo.

The new ambassador explained to the Norwegian Head of State the aim of the Mahinda Rajapaksa government and the effective action of the security forces to launch the largest hostage rescue mission in history.

He said that Sri Lanka was at the threshold of heralding a new era, in which all Sri Lankans have been presented with a renewed opportunity for peace and development. He said efforts were already underway to complement the humanitarian mission with a political solution.

Mr. Perera stated that the international community, including Norway, had the responsibility of ensuring that no terror organization operated through illegal means against the national interests of a sovereign country, with the assistance of front organizations located in a foreign land.

His Majesty Harald V agreed that the time was ripe for both Norway and Sri Lanka to turn a new chapter in the 59-year-old bilateral relationship for the mutual benefit of their respective peoples.
