Any pain or hurt that has been endured by Ukraine and Russia are a concern to Sri Lanka in the event that these two countries have been friends with the island nation backed by many bilateral ties and that Sri Lanka is aware of the pain and repercussion of war that brings to a nation, said Ruling Party MP Diana Gamage, speaking to Parliament two days (24) ago.
In a candid speech, the Ruling Party MP implored the Russian President to find a better to communicate.
“So many of our societies have come such a long way since the days of war. But nowhere near long enough to not remember what it truly costs on all sides. The suffering always continues to ripple through time, like dropping a zone in a pool of water. We are all a family on this earth and our neighbours are the ones who are, in many cases, closer to us than the rest; sharing many aspects of our culture and traditions. I urge President Putin to remember this and reconsider the methods and message he chooses to send out into a world that is now so interdependent and connected. A world in which citizens from so many lands travel to other nations, sharing their identities, learning from the environment and coming together to build the future we all strive for. One in which we can put our greatest strength to accomplish the difficulties we that we all inevitably face going forward,” she said.
