New Foreign Minister Ravi Karunanayake and new Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera assumed duties today.

Samaraweera assumed duties at the Finance Ministry by signing his first document.

The new Foreign Minister said that he will do his utmost to meet the expectations of the President and the Prime Minister and also protect the sovereignty of the country.

He said Sri Lanka’s policy is to be friends to all and have no enemies and engage in economic diplomacy.

The Foreign Minister said that Sri Lanka must go forward united as one country by protecting all communities. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Millions of dollars public money was paid as bribe to get the nomination as best finance minister in Asia. Then president sacked Ravi for bond scam, and given another portfolio to ruin the country. For two years Mangla did nothing for Sri Lanka as foreign Minister, so why such incapable man was appointed as Finance Minister?
