Defence.lk - now in Tamil
The official website of the Ministry of Defence, Public Security, Law and Order of Sri Lanka, defence.lk, has launched its Tamil page. Viewers can now get the latest news updates on the country's war on terror and other related issues in Tamil by logging to http://www.defence.lk/tamil
The Tamil language website was considered necessary by Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa, who is of the view that all citizens should be kept informed of issues related to the country's defence. The English language site was launched in April 2006 catering to both the local and international communities.
