President Rajapaksa says the country has been completely removed out of any danger of a division

President Mahinda Rajapaksa categorically stated that Sri Lanka has been completely removed out of any danger of a division.

He also assured,  "We will not allow any forces to raise their heads to divide this nation," addressing a nurse's celebration of International Nurses Day that falls on the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale (May 11), the founder of modern nursing.

The President of the State Services Nurses Union, Venerable Muruttetuwe Ananda Thero donated 2.5 million Rupees collected by the nurses for the welfare of the soldiers.

President Rajapaksa further addressing the nurses said the fate of Sri Lanka seems to be extremely good as shown by the tons and tons of LTTE weapons now being taken out by the country's security forces from their hidden places in the Wanni jungles.

If they had been put into use, the country would have had a terrible devastation, he said.

He added everybody should look after the welfare of the heroic soldiers fighting in the most dedicated fashion.

"You must look after them like you would do to your own sons and daughters. Sometimes they do not have time to change their uniforms for days. They barely have a wink of sleep after an exhaustive day under a tree," the President said.

President Rajapaksa said if all government servants serve in the same dedication like the soldiers the improvement of the country would become a simpler task.
