The Minister made this appeal when Charge d’ Affairesmof the US Embassy in Colombo Martin T. Kelly called on him at the Foreign Ministry today.

He particularly appreciated the US President’s recent announcement that Sri Lanka will be one of the countries receiving COVID-19 vaccines through the COVAX programme.

He also thanked for the consignment of USAID emergency medical supplies which arrived on 04 June 2021 and possible US technical assistance to mitigate adverse environmental impact caused by the MV X-Press Pearl disaster.

A wide range of bilateral matters, including convening of Partnership Dialogue and Joint Commission of Trade & Investment Framework Agreement, were also discussed.  

Joining the meeting, Foreign Secretary Admiral Prof. Jayanath Colombage elaborated on the government’s efforts to control the COVID-19 pandemic and the status of the on-going national vaccination programme.

    Unlike Sri Lanka US government can do zip, nil, nada about acts of the congress. Three branches of the US, Executive, Legislature and the Judiciary are independent of each other according to the constitution. Even the states are independently governed within the US.
