Sri Lankan Ambassador to Qatar A.S.P. Liyanage yesterday denied reports of being recalled by President Maithripala Sirisena, claiming instead that he had resigned.

“I sent my resignation letter, and the president accepted it. But I wasn't recalled. I prefer to return to Sri Lanka as soon as I finish my official commitments as a diplomat,” Mr. Liyanage said.

He added that he had requested the President to relieve him of his position as he wanted to be of service in Sri Lanka and nowhere else in the world.

It was reported that Mr. Liyanage was expecting to be appointed as a governor during the recent governor reshuffle, but was disappointed at being overlooked.

Despite this he would continue to support the President, Mr. Liyanage said. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    May be he should gift Maithri Peacock Mansion, and later take it back to be gifted to the next president. Oh! the things people do for power.
