US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is unable to visit Sri Lanka as previously announced due to unavoidable scheduling conflicts, the US Embassy said today.

In a statement, the Embassy said Pompeo is scheduled to accompany President Donald Trump to the G20 Summit in Japan.

The Embassy said Secretary Pompeo regretted that he was no longer able to visit Colombo at this time.  

“He hopes to travel to Sri Lanka at a later date to underscore our strong partnership with Sri Lanka, which is rooted in a commitment to democracy, economic growth and a free, open Indo-Pacific region. The United States remains committed to these objectives and looks forward to building on our longstanding partnership,” it said.

    The agreement with the U.S to sell our Country's Land should not be permitted. This Country does not belong to the Parliamentarians. They are only custodians for a given time.

    Good heavens the deal already done and very sorry for our Buruwas who wanted to perform another stunt. Wimal / Rathana / Gameon etc. A bunch of real jokers.

    Wimal Weerawansa must be worried why, since only yesterday he spoke against him.

    Pompeo does not want to displease his boss Trump who think ours' is a "shit hole" country.

    Indians must have put pressure on him not to visit Sri Lanka and make appear Sri Lanka as an important power in their dominant backyard.

    If the loud Sri Lankans are so brave just decline all aid. Including concessions for apparel imports to the US. I am sure your bosom buddy China will step forward to take up the slack.
