Lt. General Sharath Fonseka is Sri Lankan Army Chief of Staff. As Commander of the Sri Lanka Army, Fonseka played an instrumental role in ending the Sri Lankan Civil War in 2009.

Fonseka served as an officer in the Sri Lanka Army throughout the 26 year civil war, culminating in a term as commander from December 6, 2005 - July 15, 2009. As commander, he oversaw the the final phase of the civil war which resulted in the defeat of the militant Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam organization. Fonseka has been described as Sri Lanka's most successful army commander, and his run of significant military victories against the LTTE during Eelam War IV led the Indian National Security Advisor Mayankote Kelath Narayanan to describe him as the "Best Army Commander in the world".
