The MOU makes provision for assistance to Sri lanka to provide training and technical co-operation towards enhancing the anti-terrorism abilities of Sri lanka, to deter and counter terrorism , strengthen co-operation between the two countries and to further their common interest in detecting terrorists and terrorist groups from engaging in international terrorist acts and increasing respect for human rights.

The assistance will be provided in three stages, through needs assessment, course and consultation offerings, and ongoing programme reviews.
