Foreign Ministry says no welcome committee for British Royals

The Foreign Ministry today rejected claims that a welcome committee had been formed in the Government for the visiting British Royals.

The Sri Lankan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and British High Commission Colombo said that a document currently being circulated, purporting to be guidance issued by a ‘Welcome Committee of British Royals’, is not genuine.

No such committee has been constituted by either the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or British High Commission, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. (Colombo Gazette)
