US State Department official in Sri Lanka for talks

A top US State Department official is currently in Sri Lanka for talks with local leaders and officials.

The US Embassy in Sri Lanka said that Deputy Assistant Secretary Kelly Keiderling is in Sri Lanka to meet officials and thought leaders and discuss ways to strengthen the partnership and people-to-people ties.

Ambassador Kelly Keiderling is the South and Central Asian Affairs Bureau Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

She served as the US Ambassador to Uruguay from 2016-2019, and as the Deputy Commandant/International Affairs Advisor and faculty member at the National War College from 2019-2021.

Before her designation as U.S. Ambassador to Uruguay, she served as the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of the State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. The US is finally beginning to realise that change can only be engineered through the people. Attempting to “reform” endemic and systemic corruption facilitated by dynastic mafias ( corrupt politicians), is an exercise in futility.

    What we need is an ‘information platform’ easily accessible or available to rural villages/ towns that ‘enlightens’ and educates the people as to what really occurs within government, and the real reasons for the country’s malaise.

    We wish the US every success.

    • Sri Lankans are not wise enough, that is why they are talking to you as leaders of human development :–)))

      A LETTER TO THE QUEENSLAND MEDIA.

      Chris Jones,
      Editor,
      The Courier-Mail,
      41 Campbell Street,
      Bowen Hills, QLD – 4006.

      Date: 01/11/2021.

      Dear Mr Jones,

      RE: THE UGLIEST MINDS HAVE TRIED TO INSULT MY KNOWLEDGE BUT BECOME AN EMBARRASSMENT FOR HUMAN EVOLUTION, AN INSULT FOR WESTERN COUNTRIES AND A SHAME FOR DEMOCRACY.

      I have a solution for Australian farmers, refugees, and a plan to provide shelter for every homeless person in Australia. I could have easily saved billions of dollars to provide shelter for every homeless person. However, the government has been wasting billions of dollars on offshore detention centres and also wasting billions of dollars by voluntarily cancelling submarine contracts with France. The politicians have failed to do proper research before signing the contract with France. Clearly, we see a lack of accountability. It is not the politicians’ salaries or superannuation funds, but taxpayers’ hard-earned money has been wasted. They have also created unwarranted rifts with France. Above all, they have been encouraging the nuclear-armed race in the region. Due to Peter Dutton’s misconduct, the Queensland Police asked him to resign. Later on, he became the home affairs minister and managed the Australian Federal Police, Australian Security Intelligence Organisation, Australian border force. Now he became the defence minister. A man who was not good enough to be a police officer became Australia’s defence minister. Clearly, the Murdoch media has betrayed the Australian public by deliberately omitting Peter Dutton’s true character. Furthermore, Australian leadership standards have been going backward under Prime Minister Scott Morison and Defence Minister Peter Dutton. Enough is enough, I urge the Australian public to stop the incompetent leaders wasting taxpayers’ money and causing international embarrassment for Australia.

      • Well your comments should we well received in Queensland. A state of Rednecks, who thought daylight saving would give them an extra hour, and cause their curtains to fade.

        But I commend you for picking an audience with the appropriate intellectual capacity to ‘digest’ your ramblings.
