Military representatives from seven countries – India, the United States, Britain, Pakistan, Japan, Bangladesh and Maldives – Wednesday visited the Sri Lankan military command centre coordinating Colombo’s offensive into the Vanni. Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Defence said the foreign defence attaches/advisors visited the Vann Security Forces HQ as well as the HQs of the SLA’s 57 and 59 Divisions.

“The commanders of respective areas briefed the security situation to the visitors. They were also enlightened on the purpose of the on going counter terrorist offensives,” the MoD said.

“During the visit, the Defence Attaches met IDPs and surrendered LTTE cadres and observed welfare measures taken by the government. Also, the visitors had the first-hand information how certain Aid Organizations and NGOs had misused vital humanitarian aid sent from foreign countries before the areas were liberated,” the MoD said.
