Pompeo to visit on Sri Lanka’s invitation

US Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo will be arriving in Sri Lanka next week on an invitation extended by the Sri Lankan Government.

The Foreign Ministry said that the top US official will undertake an official visit to Sri Lanka from 27 to 28 October 2020, on an invitation extended by his Sri Lankan counterpart, Foreign Minister Dinesh Gunawardena.

During his visit, Pompeo will hold official discussions with the Lankan leadership as well as with his counterpart.

The Ministry further said the discussions during the visit will cover several areas of the multifaceted engagement between the two countries.

  1. Before Mr Pompeo arrives, the ground work has been done to make negotiation easy and quick.

    The West and India decided to scare the Sri Lankan government. India decided to make a movie about Prabhakaran. And the UK is talking about removing the ban on the LTTE. I don’t believe that the West or India would become successful again by dividing and conquering Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan Tamils, Muslims and Sinhalease have learned a lot during the brutal civil war. Any attempt to use Tamils to create a civil war will push Sri Lanka towards China even further.

  2. Why you want to invite him to get the US corona virus into us or you. Want to give SriLankan corona to him .He is very foolish to accept the invitation , may. Be he will not be secretary after the 3rd of Nov. So he wants to see SriLanka before that
