The United States today pledged to support Sri Lanka in its endeavor to bring about reconciliation, uphold democracy and the rule of law as long Sri Lanka continued to take courageous and positive decisions on these matters.
This commitment was given by the high-powered US state delegation led Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs, Nisha Biswal and Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labour, Tom Malinowski after meeting Sri Lanka’s Foreign Affairs Minister Mangala Samaraweera and Justice Minister Wiedasa Rajapakshe this morning.
Ms. Biswal said the US had already informed it would provide one million US$ as assistance for education and resettlement in Sampur.(Yohan Perera and Darshana Sanjeewa)
It is very annoying behaviour of those standing behind US representatives. Those who stand behind were talking and dancing and not pay attention of the speech just for respect. If they did not want to stay there, they should not have been there.

While watching these three speeches by our foreign minister and the high level two delegates from the U.S ; I observed in the background two local gentlemen kept on chatting and did not show or listen or to respect these delegates and it was so disgraceful to notice to the viewers. Especially the short guy in white shirt with a red tie has come to this venue to discuss his domestic problems I think. I hope the relevant authorities will take action to remove him from what ever the position he hold in the foreign ministry.
