The United States and India have had high-level talks on the situation in Sri Lanka.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken discussed the situation in Sri Lanka at a meeting with Indian External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar.

Blinken tweeted saying during the meeting with Jaishankar he discussed the implications of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine and Sri Lanka’s economic and political situation.

The meeting took place in Phnom Penh in Cambodia on the sidelines of the US-ASEAN Ministerial Meeting, the East Asia Summit Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, and the ASEAN Regional Forum.

Meanwhile, Blinken also had talks with his Sri Lankan counterpart Ali Sabry.

At the meeting Blinken said that Sri Lanka is in a moment of challenge and crisis but has an opportunity to create a more democratic and inclusive Government.

Sabry said his country appreciates the US role in securing support from the International Monetary Fund. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Indians say the western powers ripped off India 45 trillion dollars. Look, still they sit with westerners who ripped off India. It shows Indians are stupid.

    I always say to China that we shouldn’t trust the corrupt Indian politicians. They please the western powers at the expense of their own people. Sooner or later China has to deal with Indians and the other corrupt South Asian politicians. Currently, Ranil Wickremesinghe is shouting because he is faithful to Indians who made him a President by bribing the Sri Lankan politicians.

    I was in Sri Lanka between 2015 and 2017. I met with the Consulate General of India (Jaffna) and I mentioned my hardships as a writer, including losing my citizenship and assets due to my writing. He said ‘Australia would not do such a thing.’ Literally, he insulted Mahathma Gandhi more than me by praising the western powers highly. I really don’t think he understands why Gandhi fought against the westen imperialism.
