The United States has clarified that there is no change in the terrorist threat level for Sri Lanka.

The US State Department had on Monday issued an updated travel advise on Sri Lanka telling Americans not to travel to Sri Lanka.

A part on terrorism was also in the advise raising fears that there was a terrorist threat to Sri Lanka

“Do not travel to Sri Lanka due to COVID-19. Exercise increased caution in Sri Lanka due to terrorism,” the updated travel advise said.

However, the US Embassy in Sri Lanka said the travel advisory for Sri Lanka had been updated from Level 3 (reconsider travel) to Level 4 (do not travel) solely due to the prevailing COVID-19 situation in the country.  

“There is no change to the terrorist threat level,” the Embassy said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the US issued the Level 4 travel health notice for Sri Lanka due to COVID-19, indicating a very high level of COVID-19 in the country. (Easwaran Rutnam)

    As Sri Lanka has recently turned down loans and bilateral agreements with USA, this is the result. These are old practices, the next step would be sanctions.

    This is confrontation for not working as wanted. Killing spree is in USA by gun carriers and police. SL is 1000 times safer than USA. They should leave their country b here in SL.

    A typical US style of exerting pressure to lure us to their shackles . If MCC was signed they would have said Sri Lanka is one of the best places on earth

    It is just an advisory. If the US citizens ignore, they do at their own risk. In case of a problem don't expect the US government to help them.

    The US citizens running the country should be sent to their country, one has left, gota should also leave and let Sri Lankans govern their country

    It is difficult to comprehend the U.S.A. issuing a travel advisory regarding a threat of terrorism here as the Head of State came to power with his clique vowing to eliminate all forms of terrorism from this country and the U.S. should have thought twice before issuing such a statement as the person is a naturalized U.S. citizen of half-military and half-civilian battle-hardened person surrounded by military men who also call the shots.

    Of course the US authorities must have been aware about Easter. Who knew about the attack? Why were so many intelligence warnings ignored ?

    ding ding dong Wednesday, 26 May 2021 02:16 PM

    USA is 100% correct
