An official from the British Foreign office is due in Sri Lanka on a two day visit today for talks with Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama, the Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry said and the recent controversy involving UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband is expected to figure in the discussions.

Sir Peter Ricketts, the Permanent Under-Secretary (PUS) of the British Foreign Office is scheduled to call on Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama at his Ministry for talks tomorrow, the Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry said without elaborating on the purpose of his visit

While the agenda of the discussion has not been made public it is believe that UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband’s recent participation at the Global Tamil Forum will be among the topics to be discussed.

The Sri Lankan government had voiced strong objections over Miliband’s participation at the event saying it was a pro-LTTE event. The acting British High Commissioner in Colombo was also summoned by Minister Bogollagama to voice Sri Lanka’s anger over the latest developments. (Daily Mirror online)

    Although, everyone claims that there is 'no LTTE in existance,' many politicians, including those in Britain, seem to live their political lives, off the LTTE.

    I think the British government is seriously worried about any action, to be taken by our President.
