    Some people commenting here are showing their ignorance.....


    When a foreign leader visits another country there is usually a minister in attendance.

    He is often not the foreign minster.

    It's a paradise with beautiful white sand beaches, importantly law & order prevails there unlike Sri Lanka.

    Seychells has a population of 84,000. Less than that of Colombo North. Why bother with them ? Are we insuring future UN votes ?
