    Admiral Thisara Samarasinghe has done a wonderful job in Australia. He should be retained

    Every one should understand they were given the Positions for the service they rendered to the Country. Even Admiral Wasantha Karannagoda did a wonderful job by getting back the lost diplomatic relationship between Japan and Sri Lanka and also a lot of Japanese funded AID as well.He should be there to carry out further strengthening of our relations with Japan for the future betterment of our country.

    Sri Lanka has a separate foreign service.

    Please replace these people with actual career diplomatic service officers. If we want to re-establish our respect internationally, then the people representing us internationally must be professionals.

    Sri Lanka should be represented by highly qualified and experienced professional diplomats and not by ex armed forces heads nor government scoundrels!!
