  1. Pakistan is a good friend of Prime Minister Hon. Mahinda Rajapaksa and the Sinhalese Nation of Sri Lanka where the minority communities had lived in “Peace and Harmony”, if not for the problems the Minorities created themselves for political greed and selfishness.
    Sri Lankan majority community will never forget the UNSTINTING SUPPORT Pakistan gave Sri Lanka in the war against the most ruthless terrorist group the LTTE organization and to defeat the so-called Tamil Tigers. The communication between PM Imran Khan and HE. Mahinda Rajapaksa is much appreciated and welcome by the Muslims of Sri Lanka at this moment of history making in our “Maathruboomiya”. HE. Mahinda Rajapaksa should accept any invitation that maybe extended my PM Imran Khan to make an official vist to Pakistan (Islamabad) at the earliest. Pakistan investments should be encouraged and more trade between the two brotherly nations should prosper as a result of the new frienmdship extended, while we maint an Equilibrium in international relations with our neighbour India. Pakistan investments should be encouraged and more trade between the two brotherly nations should prosper as a result of the new friendship extended, while we maintain an Equilibrium in international relations with our neighbours. With regards to bilateral relations, this is the correct moment for Pakistan to extend all support and assistance to Sri Lanka to get through with the budened debt crisis that the country is facing presently. Pakistan should also offer more educational scholarships to Sri Lankans in educations, especially in the technical trades and designate more experts in the field of Technical exoerts in agriculture and especially in animal husbandry and “Dairy Farming”. Pakistan should come forward to take over and “turn around” the large “Dairy Farms” that the West, Australia and NewZealand has dumped on Sri Lanka under the pretext of assisting to increase milk production, but really sold thousands of cattle (milk cows) that are NOT Acclimatized to the weather conditions of Sri Lanka.
    They have been sold to Sri Lanka at large prices on strict country to country loans and fraudulent deals, one of the causes of Sri Lanka’s present debt crisis. This is how the West operate bilaterally to criple the economy of growing nations like Sri Lanka. Pakistan with a track record of having developed the dairy indusrty to become one of the largest diary industrial producers out beating even European countries with having the 3rd., largest cattle breed in the world, should come forward to assist Sri Lanka to follow their foot-steps in the dairy industry. The Sahiwal and the Red Sindhi breeds may suit Sri Lanka the best and Pakistan should try to introduce these breeds to help Sri Lanka’s Dairy Industry. Unlike the production systems in the developed countries, milk production systems in Pakistan represent smallholding with subsistence- or market-oriented-level farming followed by peri-urban or commercial-level farming. This can be an answer to failing Diary Indusrty of Sri Lanka.
    Pakistan has also to make sure that no undesirable persons enter Sri Lanka, with the assistance of the Sri Lankan security forces and the Immigration authorities and help Sri Lanka to prevent the flow of drugs into Sri Lanka by nefarious characters operating through Pakistan soil.
    A visit by Hon. Mahinda Rajapaksa to Islamabad in the near future, can pave the way for Pakistan’s engagement in Sri Lanka for the betterment of both brotherly Nations.
