Sri Lanka High Commissioner to Pakistan, vice-admiral Mohan Wijewickrema, has held discussions with Pakistan’s Navy chief Admiral Amjad Niazi over maritime security and bilateral cooperation.

In June, Pakistan’s Prime Minister stressed the country’s relationship with Sri Lanka. Pakistan has sold hundreds of millions of dollars worth of military equipment to Sri Lanka over the years, including the final years of the armed conflict where such were used to massacre tens of thousands of Tamil civilians.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
