The video of then Sri Lankan president Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga when she was interviewed on BBC's HardTalk with Tim Sebastian. The interview took place on Oct. 31, 2001. This was during an international PR campaign by Kumaratunga to capitalize on the War on Terror rhetoric in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. At the time, Sri Lanka was still facing an economic contraction, and parliament had been dissolved by Kumaratunga just 20 days prior, thus forcing Sri Lanka to have elections just 2 months later.
