    Great gesture but can we really afford it ? Sending troops is excellent

    Carlo Mendis Sunday, 13 March 2011 11:58 PM

    Well done Mr President. You are so compassionate; Srilankans are so proud to have you as the leader of our country. - Carlo-Australia.

    Open a helping Japan fund to start with

    jayanetthi Monday, 14 March 2011 12:30 AM

    This is a good and commendable approach. Even if we are poor and in debt, we need to think about utterly devastated our good friend Japan and help them in whatever ways we can.

    Godaya Monday, 14 March 2011 12:58 AM

    In the past Japan has always been one of the first to come forward to help us and this is the best way to show our gratitude. Thank you Mr. President.

    MagodisThuma Monday, 14 March 2011 01:04 AM

    UNP gonek Monday, 14 March 2011 02:47 AM

    BALLO KAPI Monday, 14 March 2011 03:04 AM

    I guess that 1 million US dollars is from our very own still to be distributed Tsunami funds

    Nan Monday, 14 March 2011 09:50 AM

    try to see at least 2 feet beyond ur own nose ranjith. Japan will remember this when we're in need.

    Ruzaick Monday, 14 March 2011 03:46 AM

    It is a good move by MR but would like to say that charity first begins at home

    pasel Monday, 14 March 2011 03:45 AM

    JVP should do the same thing they got more from Japan .
    I don't know what Japan got hit by the nuclear twice in a century

    Phil Monday, 14 March 2011 10:17 AM

    Burrow by one hand and pay part of it by the other hand to the same donor? Japan needs $180 Billion.

    gamaya Monday, 14 March 2011 04:40 AM

    Better to do something rather than nothing. We can help them the way we can afford.

    Zarook Monday, 14 March 2011 04:50 AM

    our people are suffering even without one time food, cost of living also going up very high day by day...people will serverly suffer if things goes like this. After the election the prices of all consuming items will be trible and also as government will capture expenditure of $ 1 miilion going to donate Japan

    Shafraz Zahir Monday, 14 March 2011 05:13 AM

    Bravo Sir!!! we are proud of you Mr.President

    Sammy Monday, 14 March 2011 05:17 AM

    Good gesture, even if it is giving back a donation or a borrowing. It is the sacrifice for a good cause, by serving an immediate need that is important.

    Citizen Sunday, 13 March 2011 01:50 PM

    It is a good gesture, but a joke too. You get billion $ aid from Japan and behaving like a child.

    Genarath Monday, 14 March 2011 05:13 AM

    Roshan Monday, 14 March 2011 11:36 AM
