    Keep your head up Sri Lanka, you've done great and let's move on towards a better future than yesterday with strength and courage. Depend less on other countries by strengthening local economy.

    Does this include same way what US did in Iraq.

    Now that Trump is gone back to interference in global affairs. One good thing about Trump and his nationalist policies meant America didn’t interfere with affairs of small countries. Now brace yourselves. They are back and will want to make a point to divert attention from their internal problems racism and in humane treatment of black people for example

    Must be difficult for UN to decide which past US atrocities they can condemn; so many to choose! - Vietnam, Iraq, Hiroshima, etc

    Lokka Thursday, 25 February 2021 06:37 AM

    See who is speaking! Kettle calling out black! First investigate killings in Iraq, by your country and your partner in crimes, UK. These unfounded allegations against Sri Lanka shows your hypocrisy.

    Black lives matters

    American Putin will be a Cuban Castro sooner than later .

    This is good. The government and the judiciary are hand in hand to give legal rubber stamp to corruption. People who speak against corruption in judiciary are put in jail. US should also speak about this mayhem
