Former US Ambassador for Colombo Mr Blake is in Thimpu now, discussed the recent developments following the Presidential and General elections in Sri Lanka. However further details of the discussion was not made available.
Mr Blake who made many controversial comments against President Rajapaksa’s government leads the US observer delegation to the Thimpu SAARC summit. He will hold bilateral talks with the South Asian leaders on the margins of the summit.
SAARC nations are at loss by using conventional harmful energies. Indian govt. will lose Rs. 150000 crore in FY 09 10 on oil and electricity. Cost of energy in other countries is very high. So it is high time to use free, infinite and green solar thermal energy. If every SAARCian uses solar thermal energy incident on one square meter area theoretical energy capacity of 3000 billion kWh per year or 340000 mw can be created. So come on SAARC are you listening
Mr. President, please ignore this venomous snake Robert O Blake. The only recent development we shall talk with this diplomatic ape is that the people of considers him to be a persona non grata.
