Minister of External Affairs Visits US

The Minister of External Affairs, Professor G. L. Peiris will be in the US for several days beginning May 14  for talks with the US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, Members of the US Congress, and several other politicians .

He will speak at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington DC on Tuesday, May 15 from 3:00 to 4:30 pm. Many  Sri Lankan expatriates living in the DC area are expected to attend the public lecture.

News coming out of Sri Lanka about the Government’s decision to implement the  LLRC  recommendation of releasing the names of war detainees comes at a very opportune time. Even though the names will only be released to close relatives, this is a step in the right direction, since it was a thorn on the side of Tamil politicians and a major propaganda tool for the Pro-LTTE Diaspora.
