Colombo, Oct 31 (UNI) Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa said that his government will bring an early political solution to the ethnic conflict in the country through the All Party Representative Committee (APRC) as it can not be solved by acting in accordance with views of a single person.

Speaking at the BMICH, he said the government will not sacrifice the efforts of the security forces in safeguarding the motherland.

''The government's intention is to bring an honourable peace to the country, it is not ready to betray the victories won by the three armed forces nor would the government enter in to a peace that would betray the country's sovereignty,'' the ColomboPage quoted him as saying.

The President emphasised that the government has not launched a military operation with political objectives and appealed not to belittle military successes, as thousands of youth had come forward to enlist in the armed forces and fight for the country.
