Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena charged that certain Sri Lankan diplomats in Europe are not performing their duty and as a result of that President Mahinda Rajapaksa was blocked from delivering the speech at the Oxford University.

Speaking at a function in Colombo today, the Minister said that because of these lethargic diplomats, certain LTTE elements were able to block the speech of the President.

He also charged that these so called diplomats are enjoying a luxurious life there from the money of the Sri Lankan citizens.

    Govt. made many military personnels as diplomats.I think that is not good.Usually military personels lack diplomatic qualities.

    Malkanthi Friday, 10 December 2010 04:00 PM

    Well most sri lankans knew it already. This statement will some day change to 'certain politicians in Sri Lanka are not performing their duty and as a result of that President Mahinda Rajapaksa was blocked from delivering the speech at the Local University'. we already know this too.

    Sina Sinnavi Saturday, 11 December 2010 10:51 AM

    Dear Minister, Can't you create another commission to investigate the diplomats? There are lot of surprise to follow.

    mohamed Friday, 10 December 2010 07:29 PM

    Appoint more relatives to the Diplomatic Corp

    malkanthi Saturday, 11 December 2010 03:02 AM

    It will take may be another 5 years to realise this. Since it too so long to understand about incompetent envoys.

    Nihal Friday, 10 December 2010 11:42 AM

    Correct they don´t care about there duty only looking for how they can earn some money during the staying in europe country.nothing else.

    sobers Saturday, 11 December 2010 04:11 AM

    Diplomats should be foreign service professionals. Not politicians,serviceman,businessman, stooges,corrupt individuals, & useless fellows. Get your basket correct.

    Cobra Friday, 10 December 2010 12:02 PM

    It is easy for them to talk now and blame others while they are snug as bugs in this weather after the damage was done!

    Labby Saturday, 11 December 2010 04:53 AM

    Ok recall them and have them replaced. Then face the consequences.

    Wimal_Modawansa Friday, 10 December 2010 12:18 PM

    We agree with you,Sir.Some of the Junior ministors are also not performing their duties properly and the general public is blocker of certain essential facilities.What can you suggest???

    dsr-neckar Saturday, 11 December 2010 05:07 AM

    Stop political appointments. Appoint most qualified and experienced people. Give list of duty and check every three months whether they are fulfilling.

    sandeepa Friday, 10 December 2010 12:21 PM

    THAT IS WHY YOU SHOULD NOT APPOINT YOUR HENCHMEN TO THOSE POSITIONS.

    usaguy Friday, 10 December 2010 12:24 PM

    This is because your govt has appointed your stooges as diplomats rather than sending career diplomats to our missions.

    silva Saturday, 11 December 2010 05:31 AM

    you are trying to score marks form MR to survive . There is no body to blame only himself. Stop spending public money to uplift one human body.
