While claiming that the US government is not going to impose an economic sanction on Sri Lanka, US Assistant Secretary for South and Central Asian Affairs Robert O. Blake said that the Sri Lankan government was still hesitating to go ahead with an action plan.
In an interview with ETV channel Mr. Blake said “The government (Sri Lanka) was still hesitating to go ahead with a plan when I visited Sri Lanka three weeks ago when I visited Sri Lanka three weeks ago.”
He also said that “It is important for Sri Lanka to implement recommendations of LLRC to reach the country’s full potential.”

Well said Mr. Mervyn. If USA is the largest democratic country they must honour the democratically elected Government to go ahead with their plans without intervening the internal matters undemocratically.

In Sri Lanka US /EU / UK ran with the LTTE tigers & hunted with the SLA Govt:. We would have high standards of military disciplines and finished off the tigers earlier if not for the covert help given to the LTTE by US/UK /EU who wanted to save the LTTE and this war to continue. The world must realise that SL a poor country did not have the sophisticated military like US etc: to meet the brutal challange of the LTTE. yet US & it's allies are still bogged down in Afganistan and killing civillians.

Mr. Blake, the USA is fully entitled to implement any actions deemed necessary for the benefit of the citizens of the country. Like wise be informed that Sri Lanka is also a democratic country with a government elected by its citizens and it has the supreme right to either to implement or not to implement any legal decisions at its own phase /time table and not according to a foreign country's time plan. So, let Sri Lanka solve its internal problems alone and you concentrate on HUMAN rights violations executed by your own Govt. in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, and in Vietnam when your Govt. Sprayed Agent Orange.
