Absolutely No truth in General’s Claim – Gota PDF Print E-mail
Defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapakse stated yesterday that there is absolutely no truth in Gen. Sarath Fonseka’s claim that during the Rajapakse regime the forces were not given any new weapons other than ammunition. Because soon after the war broke out in 2006 many small arms and equipment were provided to the defence forces unlike any govt has done before.

He also added that armed transport vehicles, planes, ships and missiles were imported and distributed in the last 4 years. The Defence secretary also said that the defence forces have sufficient weapons now to face any future challenge and more new weapons would be imported from Israel as required. He also added high speed assault crafts were bought from Israel this year.
