    The diaspora grouph must help in rebuilding the landskape prior to any talks of any nature.

    Peacemaker Saturday, 17 September 2016 01:55 PM

    Whilst talks continue on the accountability and reconciliation issues at the international level. The ground realities are that the Tamils in the war affected areas are undergoing so many hardships. It would be appropriate for the Tamil diaspora who helped fund a war that brought so much misery and suffering to those poor tamils to now direct their efforts with the same zeal to help them rebuild their shattered lives. Help them to prosper and regain their dignity and enjoy the peace which has been denied to them for so long and for no fault of their own.

    This is the excuse they use to keep a tight grip over Lanka.

    waruna Saturday, 17 September 2016 03:16 PM

    So, USA does negotiations for Sri Lanka?

    lonpol Saturday, 17 September 2016 03:54 PM

    how can diaspora support reconciliation and accountability in Sri Lanka? they are the people who are funding terrorists to safeguard their resident visas in western countries.

    Premalal Saturday, 17 September 2016 04:05 PM

    They are accountable for all killing by setting off bombs in public places. They were the ones who wanted separation so it is up to them to reconcile.

    Puranappu Saturday, 17 September 2016 04:38 PM

    No matter what reconciliation talks they had been accomplished but we true lankans will not give any inch of our motherland to terrorist..

    Biswal, Pleeease don't worry. We'll settle our problems. We know well who are the Americans.

    Rodny Saturday, 17 September 2016 06:10 PM

    Who are these guys. Most are economic refugees justifying to stay there. What is their qualification to talk with a state official from US. Biswal should talk with Tamils whoa re resident in Sri Lanka not in US, UK Norway etc

    Kathir Sunday, 18 September 2016 03:23 PM

    Sri Lanka needs to have discussions with Tamil living out side of Sri Lanka.This was what Mr.Obama advised very strongly to the previous Sinhalese government.This discussion will help not only for the reconciliation but also for the developpements of all North and Northeast by direct contribution of Tamils. Sinhalese should be happy to have Tamils in abroad Sinhalese can not live with out Ztamil

    Mathew George Saturday, 17 September 2016 11:54 AM

    This is what the International community should.do. Please address them positively to all those who live outside Sri Lanka and creating problems for the smooth running of my beloved Sri Lanka
