Highest Priority Civilians Miliband told

Sri Lanka Express
Colombo - Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama told David Miliband, Secretary of State for Foreign & Commonwealth Affairs of the UK during a phone conversation initiated by the latter today that the Sri Lanka Government’s highest priority is to ensure the safety of civilians entrapped in the North and that combat operations had ‘reached its conclusion.’ Minister Bogollagama explained that the security forces hitherto had been engaged in a rescue mission of the entrapped civilians and would continue to do so since the LTTE had not made any attempts to release the persons being held hostage.
Miliband said the UK had pledged an additional contribution of Sterling Pounds 2.5 million today towards the humanitarian effort.
