  1. Hope he will change his attire to proper cloths just as what Ranil is wearing.
    Please tell Angela that we are willing to give at least 1000 Syrian refugees refuge in Sri Lanka where their resettlement could be financed by Germany.
    Allocate a decent place in Colombo where they could be productive and help our economy. Like the good old China towns we could also have Syrian town in the island that would add a bit of glamour and spice to our lives. This would demonstrate that Sri Lankans are tolerant and accommodating and carering.We must not allow any extremist or Jihadists in the country.

  2. Laughing stock of the world……..IS THIS A LEADER…? Even Geneva was surprised when this dog gave up sovereignty and agreed to foreign judges !! ANOTHER DOG BORN TO THE MISFORTUNE OF SRI LANKA…………IF MAHINDA HAD GIVEN HIM MAHAWALI MINISTRY, would this dog have uttered a word ….? …..somebody help the dog by telling the dog that a jacket doesnt cover the dog …TOTAL JOKE !

  3. President and the Prime Minister are travelling one after the other. Double tragedy on the public money. Cannot the Foreign Minister meet his counterparts in those countries rather than these two wasting our money? Making hay while the sun shines?

  4. German government can obtain economy advice from the Sirisena ,At present German economy is gradually going to hell there for Sirisena’s visit good opportunity for Germany

  5. He is looking for investors, so far could not get one. I am waiting to buy a Sri Lankan made Volkswagen. Have they started manufacturing?
