    How nice if Chris mentioned India is the countries that created LTTE by training and arming terrorists and Canada is the country that funded terrorism.

    Well spoken Mr. President at ChuGiam.

    He said “Find one’s own faults before finding faults of others”

    Well said Mr. Ambassador. I agree with Nanda. He must have blasted India and Canada and have fully exposed their ulterior motive for not attending the summit.

    Bravo! Chris Nonis did an excellent job of debating and defending Sri Lanka against an OVERLY aggressive interviewer.

    Chris Nonis is urbane and articulate. Whats more, he thinks on his feet, foiling attackers and pushing them onto the defensive. We need people like that!
