  1. Security and foreign policy should not change no matter which political party governs the country. But in Sri Lanka things are different. It shows there is no national interest, but personal interest only matters. It’s a culture, it won’t go away quickly, because you have changed the President. Since the independence Sri Lanka has gone backward significantly and adopted different governing culture. It will take generations to reverse it. This is why decision making is very important to move forward. Once you have screwed up, it will take generations to fix it, somtimes you have no chance of reversing it.
