"No one can expect that an power of a terrorist group will confine to one country, it will increase as the terrorist groups copy and modify tactics used by each other", he said.
"This is why the world should help countries who fight against terrorism. We Sri Lankans have been pain from terrorist threat for decades. Yet, there are some countries act sympathizing to the terrorists groups that kill citizens of countries like ours" , he added.
Commenting on the Mumbai terrorist attack he said that there is a strong similarity between the plans used by the LTTE and the Indian terror group.
" The LTTE has trained many tactics to the overseas terrorist groups . They are the first terror group to introduce suicide bombers, the first group to connect in seaborne attacks, the first to obtain air capability", he said.
"The world can learn why a terrorists group must not be tolerated in any where in the world with Sri Lankan knowledge. The Mumbai assault reconfirms that terrorism is the most danger to the human civilizations" he finished.
