US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Robert Blake is due in the country tomorrow for talks with the Sri Lankan government on the latest developments one year after the war, a US Embassy official in Sri Lanka told Daily Mirror online.

Blake is scheduled to meet President Mahinda Rajapaksa and other top government officials during the one day visit which comes amidst support by the US for the UN panel on Sri Lanka appointed by UN Secretary General Ban ki-moon, the US Embassy official said.

Meanwhile a statement by the US State Department said that in Sri Lanka, Assistant Secretary Blake will have consultations with the Sri Lankan government, political parties, business leaders and civil society.

Assistant Secretary Blake will also travel to the Maldives and will meet government officials, opposition parties, civil society representatives, anti-trafficking activists, and religious leaders.  (Daily Mirror online)

    World community is not USA and UN. count the number of powerful countries and world bodies.

    Dee Tuesday, 20 July 2010 09:02 AM

    Hey, how about another 'peaceful protest'? and a fast? we can all supply buiscuits for the protestors.

    LouVi Tuesday, 20 July 2010 09:18 AM

    No fake fasts for Blake?

    Lanke Banda Tuesday, 20 July 2010 09:58 AM

    Blake the tale carrier should not be given appointments with Top GOSL Officials. Maybe with Mervyn or Wimal will be fine.

    Defender Tuesday, 20 July 2010 10:41 AM

    Seems another Terror problem in Maldives!!

    Upul Tuesday, 20 July 2010 10:50 AM

    Mr. Blake, you said we cannot win the war. now what do you have to say?

    Ananda Herath Tuesday, 20 July 2010 11:16 AM

    Spark, have some national pride. Don't run down your own country.

    Or are you not from Sri Lanka ? Then please keep your trap shut.

    Ananda Herath Tuesday, 20 July 2010 11:18 AM

    Well said. Good to see at least some intelligent comments like this.

    Cynic Tuesday, 20 July 2010 03:33 AM

    How about organizing another Lemon Puff and Saline 'death" fast (farce)?

    Giann Tuesday, 20 July 2010 03:41 AM

    Welcome to SL. Hope you see what you want to see.

    TDDC Tuesday, 20 July 2010 03:42 AM

    I hope he make a negotiated settlement with his former ally , Talaban in Afghanistan.

    spark Tuesday, 20 July 2010 03:50 AM

    I thought these guys were unwelcome to patriot republic of Sri Lanka. Why are we issuing visa's for such entries. Have the cardboard lions finally ended up becoming overtame pussies?

    Wasantha Tuesday, 20 July 2010 03:52 AM

    Bunhe to meet GL. Blake to meet MR. Ranil to meet Manmohan. All nonsence and rideculous.

    Rahul Tuesday, 20 July 2010 04:00 AM

    If Mr. Blake is genuine and serious about this effort, he needs to meet with the minority parties!

    nishV Tuesday, 20 July 2010 04:01 AM

    send this white tiger back home straight away. he has done enough damage for our motherland.

    Karthik Tuesday, 20 July 2010 04:40 AM

    “Check mate” I think…

    Gayan Samarasekara Tuesday, 20 July 2010 04:42 AM

    Please send someone to America also, to discuss about the latest steps taken in order to safeguard the coastal line and sea lives due to British Petroleum faults.

    Sam Tuesday, 20 July 2010 04:45 AM

    Please cancel this idiot's visa!

    tha Tuesday, 20 July 2010 04:47 AM

    Have a nice holiday........

    Ranjana Tuesday, 20 July 2010 04:59 AM

    Blake is going to thank Wimal for his effort to give more powers to the panel, and increase the number of people assisting the investigations. BLAKE KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THE COUNTRY

    MaPer Tuesday, 20 July 2010 04:59 AM

    You will see WW bending in two when he meets Blake. If the SL government are really serious about non-interference from the west, then why are they meeting up with Blake and Buhne?

    Podi Guru Tuesday, 20 July 2010 06:40 AM

    The fact is, whether you like Blake and Buhne or not, Sri Lanka has to interact with other countries and organizations if it is to be a part of the world community. I hardly doubt that these are one-way meetings and am confident Sri Lankans will express their views.

    Kirthi hewamanne Tuesday, 20 July 2010 06:44 AM

    Give him some Bananas,we have too much of it.

    Gunda Tuesday, 20 July 2010 07:07 AM

    For the sake of all Sri Lankans, place WW under house arrest.....
