    There must be lot of commitments made from this end. Also it is good of the neighbor in order to iron out the widening differences.

    Bob Seygal Monday, 11 February 2013 09:15 AM

    Only remnants of LTTE forces will write anti-Sri Lankan statements and day dream about not having Commonwealth Meeting in Sri Lanka.

    Minister Monday, 11 February 2013 01:36 PM

    Nothing will happen at last. It would be just another international meeting with some delegates for whom it will be another tour in Sri Lanka. People will pay the price!

    Ranil Monday, 11 February 2013 09:23 AM

    That's the dream of terrorist outfits.

    Clifford Monday, 11 February 2013 09:21 AM

    Now that the meeting is confirmed to be staged in Colombo, the poor man will have to suffer from all corners

    Malaka Silva Monday, 11 February 2013 10:34 PM

    "Commonwealth Secretary-General denies confirming Sri Lanka as host venue for CHOGM"

    Game Kolla Monday, 11 February 2013 10:15 AM

    Ryan Monday, 11 February 2013 10:42 AM

    More than poor man, the LTTErs suffer.

    ANDARE Tuesday, 12 February 2013 12:29 AM

    Ranil Monday, 11 February 2013 11:20 AM

    God d news for Srilanka. All citizen should be proud of our country.

    idroos2002 Monday, 11 February 2013 11:21 AM

    Yes of course we should pay a price to attract the world . Prices all over the world is rising why only exempt sri lanka since we automatically follow the world when price rises and do not vice versa its our sovereign decision.

    Roy Monday, 11 February 2013 11:22 AM

    Let Canada boycott as its the haven of terrorists. If they dont boycott, the Head of Govt's head will be on the line.

    Who cares if Canada attends or not.

    Silva de Mervin Monday, 11 February 2013 03:49 PM

    He is not the decision maker!.

    A decision will be made by the ministers and that will again be conveyed by him.

    Ajaya Tuesday, 12 February 2013 06:04 AM

    Hoooo ..... Hoooo... Hooooo

    Ajaya Tuesday, 12 February 2013 06:02 AM

    Hooooo....... Hoooooo......

    Rider Monday, 11 February 2013 11:59 AM

    Getting thumbs down for comments praising govt is understandable in this forum. But getting same response for comments praising Sri Lanka makes us wonder who the actual readership of DM. Really worrying situation.

    A. Siriwattana Monday, 11 February 2013 04:42 PM

    I totally agree with Rider. Since there's no independent verification, most probably the DM is manipulating the Thumbs Up & Down game to suit it's anti Sri Lankan, anti national policy.

    John Tuesday, 12 February 2013 03:16 AM

    First you wait until the cancellation of the meeting to blow your trumpets. now boat turns, trying to blow another song. You're culprits.
