    Welcome Prime Minister to Sri Lanka. When travelling thru Katunayake EXPRESSWAY, please be extremely careful. The expressway has NO STREET LIGHTS.

    Thai citizens have visa on arrival but SL citizens do not get visa on arrival in Thailand even though India has and we have a much smaller population to both Thai and India. This is just an example of how our negotiators are unable to make good deals.
