The Sri Lanka army denied fresh claims that it used chemical weapons during the war against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) as alleged in a video aired on Indian television. The video aired on News X shows a man clad in army uniform describing how chemical weapons were used against the LTTE during the final stages of the war.
Sri Lankan Army spokesman Brigadier Ruwan Wanigasooriya said Sri Lanka Army always used conventional weapons in its fight against terrorism and the latest allegation could be another fabrication or a speculation targeting the Geneva sessions.
“As you know Sri Lanka did not manufacture weapons or munitions and we procured our inventories from known suppliers through government to government interventions, he said.
