The Asian Group expressed its support for United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s bid for a second term. This implies that Sri Lanka too will support him, high placed sources at the Ministry of External Affairs said.

The Asian Group, on Monday, unanimously endorsed the candidacy of Ban to serve a second five-year term as the head of the UN from January 2012. He will therefore run unopposed. The Security Council will meet to endorse him before the General Assembly meets to endorse him by acclamation in September.

    Guru Friday, 10 June 2011 05:16 AM

    This doesn't mean that Ban ki Moon will support SL in any way.

    spark Friday, 10 June 2011 05:24 AM

    Paul Friday, 10 June 2011 06:03 AM

    This is kissing the hand that cannot be severed'.Our government can brag even on our inability.

    spark Friday, 10 June 2011 06:26 AM

    The wish of right thinking people is criminals should be identified for their dastardly deeds and punished while the innocent should be protected.

    Game Kolla Friday, 10 June 2011 06:35 AM

    Sri lankan government has double standard.

    Chandraya Friday, 10 June 2011 06:38 AM

    Niv Friday, 10 June 2011 08:09 AM

    He is still quite because, now worrying why i appointed the 3 member committee. He didn't expect that panel will come up with such a serious report.

    TMA Friday, 10 June 2011 08:37 AM

    freehit Friday, 10 June 2011 03:23 AM

    The great betrayal !

    Iqbal Friday, 10 June 2011 09:15 AM

    THe government realises that Ban Ki moon is more friendly than anyone else in the UN.

    Suduloonuwa Friday, 10 June 2011 03:32 AM

    The Liberal Friday, 10 June 2011 03:44 AM

    Just like SL politics huh? Some backroom deal between MR and BKM, or simply the incompetence of SL Foreign Ministry?

    Priyanka Friday, 10 June 2011 03:45 AM

    Bank Ki Moon was colloborating with Sri Lankan government by keeping quiet even UN officials were forced to leave war front to avoid bing witness. There is no surprise in this news.

    Sasanka Liyanage Friday, 10 June 2011 03:49 AM

    Kapanna beri atha imbinawa!

    Bumba Friday, 10 June 2011 03:53 AM
