    Well done and Thank You. This is the type of news we Sri Lankans glad to hear from our Missions abroad. We have to reach out to all to build our friendship and understanding and progress towards a UNITED SRI LANKA.

    By the way did you not invite one of a prominent members of the House of Commons who made her maiden speech in Tamil and continue with an agenda to take our country to War Crimes Tribunal. Her name, if I remember correct is Ms. Radika Sitsabesan ( Hope I have correctly spelled the name, if not my apology to her). She should have been there to see how ceremonious that occasion was and make her own resolutions to promote friendship and understanding among all people.

    Thank you again for the good work.
