'Not ready to govern country on NGOs' opinions' says Sirisena

The Sri Lankan president Maithripala Sirisena on Saturday said he was "not ready to govern the country on the opinions of NGOs which were operating on international relationships and file charge sheets against the security forces," the Daily Mirror reported. 

Mr Sirisena also pledged to protect the armed forces from any international prosecutions as well as reiterating his objection to international judges in any accountability mechanism.
