    I think Harim's appointment is just a hangover from Chandrika Kumaratunga's time.

    Any appointment must be justified. What is his international relations background to be appointed ? Every appointment costs the tax payer and unless he has skills to advise the Foreign affairs minister on foreign policy, he should not be appointed. Civil society, do you agree and ensure the appointment should add value to the foreign ministry. This is nothing personal on Harim but to set good governance for Sri Lanka. We already have the eminent Jayantha Dhanapaa as advisor to President on foreign policy. So, do we need more advisors ?
