Threat to one country is threat to all of SAARC – Mangala
A terrorist threat to one South Asian country is a threat to the entire region, Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera told a gathering of finance ministers representing the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) today.
“The threat of terrorism in one of our countries is no doubt a threat to the entire region. It is therefore in all of our interest to collaborate and coordinate our efforts and measures to eradicate global terrorism,” a statement quoted him as saying.
Samaraweera was speaking at the SAARC Finance Ministers meeting held on the sidelines of the 52nd annual meeting of the Asian Development bank in Nadi, Fiji.
“I am confident that if we work together, we will succeed in bringing peace, stability and prosperity to the entire SAARC region,” he said.
