While confirming that the entire staff of the Sri Lankan Embassy in Austria including its Ambassador was recalled, President Maithripala Sirisena today said he ordered to do so to send a message across to other Sri Lankan missions as well.

Addressing the National Ozone Day celebrations at the BMICH in Colombo, the President said his staff tried to contact the Embassy in Vienna, Austria for four and a half hours because he wanted to speak with the Sri Lankan Ambassador there.

“However, no one was available to respond to at least one of the six phones at the embassy. Therefore, the entire Sri Lankan staff from the ambassador to the labourer was recalled. The staff will return soon. I made this order to send a message to other embassies as well,” he said.

    Is this an April fool's joke in September? This president has lost his mind. First the cashew nuts on a Sri Lankan flight and now this.

    Rasheed Tuesday, 18 September 2018 12:09 PM

    As I live in Europe I feel this kind of warning is deserving toall Foreign Missions here - they live and work in luxurycompared to their counter-parts. They must be kept dutyconcious at all times. The setting of an example is ofcoursevery costly in this case.

    pls withdraw Qatar Ambassador 1st....!

    Zub Tuesday, 18 September 2018 01:56 PM

    Rasika Tuesday, 18 September 2018 06:00 PM

    There are so many Sri Lanka Ambassador/ counsel posts around the world, which are unnecessary. Los Angeles in USA is one of them. The money spend for the staff supposed to spend for the people in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka has a counsellor in Washington,DC. That is more than enough. Even India does not have a counsellor office in Los Angeles.Recent SriLanka independence celebration was held at UCLA. Spend 10's of thousands of dollars. Whos money is that? This money belongs to the people of Sri Lanka.

    Does president know Austria in different time zone? Overseas office open in local times instead of SL times.
