    Good move. The first country to stand up to American imperialism and unethical actions...and still standing strong. Growing a backbone is the first move towards being at least human.

    Another aeroplane full of golayas? Surely Sajin Vaas must be going to cary bags & bagages.

    I wish to know the money spent each President's foreign visit since he came to power and benefits to our country from these visits.

    can deliver enough lectures there in Havana, Santa Clara, Santiago de Cuba, Camaguey, Baracoa etc.

    Make sure there is no diaspora in Cuba.

    It's not that really,Sumedha. The point is MR has to keep a good rapport with his new found friends as the old ones are are giving him the cold shoulder these days. His fault actually.

    Why not he do a Round the world tour at once as this would be less costly than these separate tours from time to time.

    R.Dias Thursday, 14 June 2012 11:26 AM

    Will he swim to America....?

    I can not understand the Sri Lankan foreign policy.....trying to show that they are anti American and anit west and at the same time go and kneel down in front of the west to get foreign aid ....????? at least if he can get free BTI from Cuba to cover the unnecessary expenditure of the trip ..!!!

    It seems the Colombians and the detractors are still smarting and fuming for their inability to change the regime, and that is manifested by their comments !! Amusing indeed.

    jeevan Thursday, 14 June 2012 11:38 AM

    poor srilankans money wasting...god bless to srilankans poor poeple...

    how many billions Rs. they spend for traveling, where will be the end ,,,

    Sammy Thursday, 14 June 2012 07:56 AM

    All these overseas trips in the past few weeks have been at whose cost?

    Minister Thursday, 14 June 2012 08:07 AM

    But, lot of Cubans are said to be apprehended by US border patrol when trying to enter USA illegally. I don't know why!!

    dgd Friday, 15 June 2012 05:55 AM

    I think its because the colombians are better educated and can understand geopolitics and things like balnace of payments better than the uneducated lot. So its frustrating when the govt makes blunder after blunder.

    rajraj Thursday, 14 June 2012 08:17 AM

    You mean Sri Lankan

    Sumanasiri Thursday, 14 June 2012 08:23 AM

    Cant resist vising the West...even if it is only Cuba.

    raj Thursday, 14 June 2012 08:24 AM

    Why are Cubans leaving Cuba, even swimming across to Miami- USA. Is it because Cuba is too good for them?

    Hussain Friday, 15 June 2012 06:17 AM

    Why is everyone insulting Cuba? Cuba has always stood with Sri Lanka., why are we insulting that country who is our friend at all times. They have survived an economic embargo imposed by the US for over 50 years. We should admire that country for its resilience and standing for what is right in this world. A Cuban can go any place in the world safely, but one cannot say the same of any American.

    Rohan Friday, 15 June 2012 06:18 AM

    Do they have a budget for this trip? Main reason that Sri lankan airline losing billions due to this unnecesary trips by the boss and his hundreds of henchman.

    Jegan Thursday, 14 June 2012 09:52 AM

    Castro's daughter is pro-American, new generation in Cuba is changing rapidly,Castro brothers are too old..
