Embassy of Sri Lanka Launches Ambassador’s Webcast

WASHINGTON (Oct. 10, 2011) – Jaliya Wickramasuriya, Sri Lanka’s ambassador to the United States and Mexico, is featured on a new webcast produced by the Embassy of Sri Lanka. During the webcast, Ambassador Wickramasuriya discusses post-conflict resettlement, reconciliation and development in Sri Lanka. He calls on members of the Sri Lankan community in the United States to help publicize those positive developments to help Americans better understand that lasting peace and growing prosperity has returned to Sri Lanka.

Government of Sri Lanka forces defeated the terrorist group LTTE in May 2009 after 26 years of conflict. Since then, there have been no terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka and the government has launched an expansive program to resettle those displaced by the fighting, reconcile ethnic differences and rebuild damaged areas. Today, nearly all the displaced have been resettled and infrastructure repairs continue as the economy in Sri Lanka’s Northern Province, where the war concluded, has markedly improved.

During his talk, Ambassador Wickramasuriya highlights a variety of such developments, and he urges Sri Lankans in the U.S. to contact their elected representatives to share the information with them.

‘Lies Agreed Upon’ to be screened at UN

The documentary ‘Lies Agreed Upon,’ will be screened on Tuesday at 2:00 pm. in the Dag Hammarskjold Auditorium of the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

The documentary was made in response to the Channel 4 film “Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields” to counter the false allegations contained therein.

The screening of ‘Lies Agreed Upon’ at the UN Headquarters is seen as a diplomatic victory for Sri Lanka, because LTTE lobbyists and sections of the Tamil diaspora supportive of the terror group could not get “Killing Fields” screened in the UN itself despite their best efforts.
