Sri Lanka's Prime Minister DM Jayaratne on Sunday called for the public to unite in the face of threats to the country's sovereignty from international forces.

Addressing a public gathering at Gampola, his constituency in the central province Sunday, Jayaratne said that Sri Lanka's progress after ending the 30 year curse of terrorism has angered many international elements who want to undermine the country.

Jayaratne's response was on the U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon's advisory panel on Sri Lanka.

A three-member advisory panel in mid April in their report called for setting up of an independent investigation into alleged war crimes during the final stages of the military clashes between the government troops and the Tamil Tigers.

Sri Lanka has dismissed the report as one full of hearsay evidence provided by pro-Tamil Tiger groups.

The government has launched a massive public protest campaign against the report.
