“The President asked me and I agreed. I will be the only Minister in the delegation and the rest will be officials” he said.
Sources said in this regard a meeting chaired by the President was held yesterday. External Affairs Minister G.L. Peiris, Minister Smarasinghe and other high level officials of the Ministry of External Affairs were present at the meeting when the decision was arrived at.( Hafeel Farisz)

Why not sent our very efficient PSC TEAM that wrapped up the CJ's Impeachment in record time? I'm sure they will do the same before Navi Pillai could say "Welcome Delegates to.....".

If the government fails in Geneva, it'll deliver its usual "Kekille" justice" - KILLING ITS OWN MESSENGER. They did that to Ambassador Tamara K. who fought for SL. via DM Android App

Is G.L Peiris a ceremonial Minister of External Affairs, after all he has traveled around the globe and laid the spadework to face the UN and now comes Mahinda Samarasinghe to lead the team. I sincerely hope that he will not mess up the whole affair like last time.
