Foreign Relations Ministry Secretary Ravinatha Aryasinha requested Sri Lankans living abroad to make an objective assessment of their current circumstances prior to requesting their return to Sri Lanka.

 

Mr. Aryasinha said this in response to a question asked during a Television interview recorded at the Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation (SLRC) yesterday.   


Q: What is the message for migrants as there maybe individuals with different needs in different situations among them ? So based on their circumstances what should they consider before they request returning to Sri Lanka? The Foreign Secretary said, “Well that is a question each migrant has to answer for themselves and a migrant meaning a student, someone working abroad. There is also a category of about 3,000 individuals out there who are there on short term visits and are now stranded, they don’t have that choice, they have to come back home, and we are trying to draw them also in to the present movements, to the greatest possible extent, probably with the hotels being used for quarantine, which are also now getting filled up.   


But to those who have a choice, my advice has all along been to make an objective assessment of one’s circumstances.  For those who insist on coming back, we will prioritize their applications in an objective way.
