While indicating the Swedish government interest in establishing a bilateral relationship with Sri Lanka, Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt said that he will visit Sri Lanka in the near future.

This has been revealed at a meeting Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to Sweden Oshadi Alahapperuma had with Sweden’s Foreign Minister Bildt in Stockholm on Monday.

It is also learnt that Carl Bildt has shown keen interest in the implementation of the LLRC Resolutions and the prevailing conditions of the resettled displaced persons, not only in the Northern Province, but also in the East too.

Ambassador Oshadi Alahapperuma has explained that Sri Lanka Government has taken measures to resettle the displaced persons and only another less than five thousands persons are to be resettled before the end of this year. Sri Lankan Ambassador has also explained the measures the Government is taking to bring about reconciliation. He explained that the home grown solution is applied to bring the country to normalcy.

He also further pointed that the Government has taken adequate measures to implement those LLRC resolutions and said that the domestic process is on and would be completed soon.

Sri Lankan Ambassador has extended an invitation to the Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt to Visit Sri Lanka and see for himself the North and Eastern provinces and the amount of development activities the Sri Lankan Government has undertaken.

    What are you up to. Fact finding for the LTTE.

    May be to prevent closing of the embassy in Stockholm.

    justin Wednesday, 04 April 2012 06:43 AM

    I suppose that this won't change the earlier decision by the Govt. to close down the Mission in Sweden.

    Do we really need to roll out the Welcome Carpet to one of the Countries that Co-Sponsored the UNHRC Resolution against our Motherland

    Cannot trust these people. Visit is irrelevent, close down the embersy in sweden, its not contributing anything positive for SL.

    Ruhunu Kolla Wednesday, 04 April 2012 03:42 PM

    Sri lanka benefited from that country, not the other way about, one of the key Mahawali reservoirs is an outright gift from Sweden!

    Carl Bildt together with the American diplomat Richard Houlbrook are the miain architects of seperation of former Yugoslavia into 4 pices, namely kroacia, bosnia, serbia and kosovo. This fellow is expert on this subject. SL be careful.

    So, do you also welcomes the LLRC? Because Sweden also wants that SL should implement the LLRC fully.

    Looking for ways and means to help the depleted LTTE? like Norway who helped and trained the sea tigers? If he lands here charge him for aiding and abetting a terrorist outfit....even better to deport on arrival...

    Dalu Banda Wednesday, 04 April 2012 09:06 AM

    Sorry, we are going to close and shifting to Africa and Latin America.

    ramba Wednesday, 04 April 2012 09:26 PM

    shantha madawela Wednesday, 04 April 2012 04:01 AM

    now we can say Sweden is better than USA....

    Gayan- You havent a clue, do you? You are just airing you ignorance. SIDA or Swedish International Development Agency has been helping Sri Lanka for the past 50+ years. After the tsunami they contributed a sum of SKr 156 Million (US$ 24 Million) to build houses and infrastructure. Sweden has provided support for a number of projects, improved the infrastructure and developed the private sector in the conflict-worn eastern and northern parts of the country.
    There has also been cooperation between the Sweden’s central bank, the Riksbank, and Sri Lanka’s central bank, where we have been involved as financiers.
