This is very dangerous. These people are known to align with a certain political ideology that in my view is not in the best interests of SL.

Moragoda was the foreign minister under Ranil’s 2001 to 2004 regime that is known to be the most treacherous.

They presented a National Security Strategy for Sri Lanka 2020 and a Study on Managing Foreign Policy and Relations with the UN System to President Rajapaksa. Any such policy must be widely discussed. A policy created by a small group of people who don’t even represent SL is not valid.

What is going on behind the scenes? Why weren’t these presented to media? I smell a rotten rat.

The Pathfinder Foundation has set up a study group chaired by Pathfinder Senior Fellow and former Central Bank Governor Dr. Indrajit Coomaraswamy, to prepare a set of action-oriented recommendations aimed at steering the Sri Lankan economy into the post-COVID-19 era.

Dr. Sisira Pinnawala, Department of Sociology University of Peradeniya, and Dr. Ganeshan Wiganaraja, Executive Director Lakshsman Kadirgamar Institute, will serve as principal authors for this initiative. The report is expected to be presented to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa by the end of April.

Other members of the Study Group, which will consist of twenty leaders from academia, research and the private sector, include Prof. Sirimal Abeyratne, Prof. Saroj Jayasinghe, Prof. Rohan Samarajiva, Prof. Muttukrishna Sarvanthan, Ashroff Omar, Dr. Hans Wijayasuriya, Krishan Balendra and Mohamed Mushin.

Recently the Pathfinder Foundation was responsible for preparing 1) a National Security Strategy for Sri Lanka 2020 and 2) a Study on Managing Foreign Policy and Relations with the UN System. Both of which were presented to President Rajapaksa.

    Milinda Moragoda is married to an American woman related to the Kennedy family. What implications with a possible Democratic Administration by 2021 is difficult to surmise. Sri Lanka just has to stay strong only relying on all-weather friends. Sri Lanka has no future with the US. US is already a spent force. Post Corona America will be different. There will be wide spread dissension in the Americas lead by the US.

    The final death throes of Pax Americana could be deadly and ugly!
