France says reconciliation is a major issue

reconciliation.jpg 2The French Government says the most important issue for Sri Lanka is reconciliation between the country’s communities.

Jean-Paul Monchau, the Ambassador of France to Sri Lanka, says France and the European Union are very attentive to this issue because as friends of the Sri Lankan people, both France and the EU really hope to see progress in this field to ensure that war will never take place again.

“Reconciliation imposes efforts to be made by everyone, not only by the government, but also by the majority and opposition, by civil society, by religious leaders and by all stakeholders concerned.

There is no other possibility to maintain a peace which was so difficult to achieve.

I must say, reconciliation does seem possible when you see that here, in Colombo, all communities live in harmony, all religions are respected and all three languages are taught and spoken,” the Ambassador said in a statement to mark the French National Day.
