The US Embassy in Sri Lanka denied recent reports in media stating that U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has invited the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) for discussion in Washington, DC and affirmed that an invitation had been extended only to External Affairs Minister G.L. Peiris.
Secretary Clinton invited Minister G.L. Peiris to Washington on May 18 and welcomes that visit, the US Embassy stated.
“While the United States seeks to engage with all political parties in Sri Lanka, there is no visit scheduled for the TNA, either before or after that meeting,” the Embassy said in a release today (03).
