External Affairs Minister G.L. Peiris met the British High Commissioner on Monday to discuss the British Foreign Office travel advisory issued for British nationals visiting Sri Lanka.
“The minister asked that the travel advisory be amended in keeping with the developments in the North. We mentioned that there was no justification for such a travel advisory because there is stability and security in the country,” a source told the Daily Mirror.
The advisory said there was a heavy military presence throughout the country and a looming terrorist threat. (Dianne Silva)
