The panel presenting the Sri Lankan Experience will share their knowledge of counterinsurgency emphasizing the predominance of the political effort, military effort, efficient politico military gearing and rapid resettlement as the core contributors to the success of the campaign.We will endeavour to propose adequate measures to manage and counter global terrorism, and discuss strategies for nation building while introducing the Sri Lankan perspective on counter terrorism, he said.
