Endorsement of our achievements by world leaders is a great incentive and a blessing for Sri Lanka – President
President Maithripala Sirisena said that the world leaders have commended Sri Lanka on the achievements of the last 18 months and that is a great incentive, encouragement and a blessing for Sri Lanka. He said this while briefing media on his discussions with several Heads of State and other leaders at the Loews Regency Hotel in New York.
He said that during the last UNGA too, he met these leaders, but they were more curious about the new government’s policies then. “Now they express open appreciation about our achievements,” he said. “I assured them that we, as a government, are determined to take the country towards progress and make Sri Lanka a truly democratic and prosperous nation,” he said.
The current respectful position of Sri Lanka is something the entire nation, irrespective of party politics could be proud of, Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera said, and added that the credit for this achievement goes to President Sirisena. Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe said that he had attended the UN sessions since 2002, and today he could see a remarkably favourable position towards Sri Lanka among the international community.
Minister Gayantha Karunathilake said that the world leaders have a tremendous respect for Sri Lanka because our President tells the world , whatever he tells the people at home, whereas previous leaders used to say something at home and a different thing when they are out of the country.

Who thinks this is an achievement?
US admitted that Libiya is a failure for them, Iraq is another failure too.
In future, they might write the same for SL as well.
Sorry to say this, leading a country cant not be done by any ordinary man. Or any ordinary government.
Winning an election is an easy task, but governing is a humongous task.
It can not be done as like managing a village.
People should realize the mistakes and correct themselves.
Some learnt lessons, when they utilized power in wrong ways. When given ultimate freedom to the family and relatives. Once learnt the lesson, doing it again is a thoughtful mission keeping one foot at the back.
President Maithreepala Sirisena is great leader in the making. The international recognition he has gained is a great blessing to our motherland.
In the words of Niyamasinhalaya, governing a country is a humongous task. MY3 has cross-party support in this task. Of course, there are stupid elements in any Government. There are idiots in the MY3 Government who are capitalising on power and accumulating millions. They will eventually be brought to book.
Prez MY3’s purity, RW’s economic vision and CBK’s political strategy will definitely work if given a chance to rule for 10 years. The Junketeers in JO will all be dead and gone by then.
