    If Cameron can go in person to Dubai and sell their military hardware, why cant our president visit countries that buy large quantities of our tea.

    Whatever said and done, tea still is still Sri Lanka's backbone.

    My Dear Patriot,
    Please refer to the wikipedia. You will see that this country far more advanced than ours in all respect. So MR may get value by visiting it.

    Kazak is the place for Satellite launching. Rohitha (youngest scientist) could learn a lot from this visit. Good Luck.!.

    Sammy Tuesday, 20 November 2012 04:14 AM

    Astrologically, the time may not be right for him to be in Sri Lanka.

    ravi Tuesday, 20 November 2012 06:32 AM

    Hey Kazakhistan,

    Are you another libya or Maldives? Be ready for assassination or revolution by west because of Satanic views.

    lalinda Tuesday, 20 November 2012 07:30 AM

    I would say he should take two planes loaded with his associates and visit all the countries in the east european bloc and african continent, to show our unity and might.

    KD Monday, 19 November 2012 07:24 AM

    dukka Monday, 19 November 2012 06:31 AM

    Waste of public money

    Huna Monday, 19 November 2012 06:34 AM

    Soon he will set a Guinness world record as the President who has visited all the countries in the world

    Ravi Monday, 19 November 2012 06:35 AM

    He visit to get advise to solve the Sri Lanka ethnic problem on same way of model ..

    Patriot Monday, 19 November 2012 06:51 AM

    Wonder why he only goes to countries like Kazakhstan and Balukistan instead of going to developed countries where there is democrazy?

    rajev Monday, 19 November 2012 05:22 AM

    If any one wants give parcels to Kazakhstan relations can give it to president ...

    OMG Monday, 19 November 2012 07:29 AM

    For all those who are sarcastic about Kazakhstan: This might be the most worthwile trip our president has made in the recent years.

    !. Kazakhastan holds huge amounts of untapped oil and other metals and Western governments and companies are already swarming the country like bees.

    2. Per capita consumption of Ceylon tea per Kazakh is several times more than Sri Lankans.

    sayed Monday, 19 November 2012 07:33 AM

    Developed people visit to developed country undeveloped people visit to undeveloped country .

    MirakRajBanda Monday, 19 November 2012 07:40 AM

    Human rights violation in Kazakhstan appalling, army has a firm grip in day to day life and the evening curfew is a norm.
    It's one of the poorest nations in central Asia region.
    What's MR doing there?

    Collecting votes for March 2013 Geneva Human Rights session?
    All the latest movement and development of MR clearly shows he is much worried about Geneva!!!

    buffaloa citizen Monday, 19 November 2012 07:42 AM

    To visit developed and democratic nations ones governance needs to be civilized to be respected by those same nations.

    Faazil Monday, 19 November 2012 08:10 AM

    Why he does not go to USA?
