    To most PEOPLE including the type of Ali Baba Rajapaksa and his types she is indescribable. Actual fact is she is a very knowledgeable well balanced leader who failed to be bold

    Birds of a Feather Flock together. Sri Lanka will reign high once again...sans the new constitution and the US. Trump is a good man who will not hurt us like the Obama Regime.

    Very rarely does a US diplomat gives such credit, also another side kick to MR camp.

    Keshap, you will be thrilled if you could have read "Chaura Rajina" by Victor Ivon. and request counselling in areas you even haven't heard before. (unfortunately I don't think it has an English translation).

    Yes, meeting is worthwhile because she was one of the presidents who spoilt the nation after Premadasa and Maithreepala.
