Addressing troops in the North, the Commander underlined the importance of discipline at all levels as Army personnel, dedicated to the national security of the country. He also pointed out the need to maintain excellent relations with civilians in respective areas and launch projects that would help promote ethnic harmony, understanding and reconciliation.

The Commander of the Army also highlighted the theme of the Army for the year 2018, ‘Rata Rakina Jathiya – Sri Lanka Army’ and urged everyone to commit to the organization and help develop the country in the future.

“Best welfare is the training and all of us after retirement should not get involved in politics and one should not forget the past war and incidents”. He also urged all members not to fall prey to illegal acts since it would tarnish the image.
