The U. S. says that the suspension of the GSP concession to Sri Lanka is still in effect.
The BBC World Service reported that the American Embassy in Sri Lanka has issue a communique rejecting media reports published by several media that the U.S. has decided to restore the withdrawn GSP facility.
The American Embassy also said that the Congress is yet to vote on reinstating the GSP facility.
The GSP facility which was given to Sri Lanka has been temporarily suspended since January 2011.

SL is not dependent on the imperial West largesse for economic development. We have moved on from that era of colonial servitude. We have non-aligned countries like the superpowers Russia and China and other friendly nations to support us to develop on fast track. Hence two fingers to USA, Britain and other LTTE supporting imperial West, hypocritical countries with double standards. Let them stuff their GSP plus on you-know-where.
Brave words from Mr Nicholas. He flies that lion flag a bit higher each occasion. The hero is of course, the Voharadhipathi.
A proud nation where a month ago, 58,000 young men applied for 600 toilet cleaning jobs in Korea. That is the state of the nation, Mr Nicholas (who is presumably enjoying a life of luxury on a tax payer funded pension).
well said mr.N.D.we do not need any help from the bloody imperial west.we have seen what they done to all the muslim countries,
@Julian Siriwardane says:
I think your statement is leading to diff angel.
I have seen with many SL guys like to go out of the country and work as a mental fever. So they wont hesitate to clean a toliet as they are out of the country, but if you given the same job in SL by building many toilets around the country do you think they will do?
We have to build our econmy and stand as one. Enough doing nonsense and stay away from the world. We need to stop bias with USD and make strong rupee soon.
USA is reserving their own oil and gas stocks at home and exploiting the oil and gas stocks of the Middle East countries. The day these countries run-out of their fuel and mineral resources, they will be in trouble, as they do no other income generating resources. Then USA will use their own reserves which they have saved.
USA use their fire-power and grow militarily in order to remain a superpower, to exploit and grab the mineral and other resorces of smaller nations. USA dominates smaller nations and dictates to them. It manipulates UN and other organisations for this purpose. Any small nation that does not fall-in with US agenda are steam-rolled into oblivion by USA in alliance with Britain, France and other imperial West countries.
Leaders of small nations that do not comply with US agendas are removed through ‘revolutions’ which US and the imperial West agencies, such as CIA and MI6, have engendered in those countries. Once leaders of such countries are toppled/asassinated, those countries are in anarchy and ruin, with no proper governments to generate strong economies for the benefit of their peoples. Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya are prime examples.
Hon Mahinda Rajapaksa stood bravely against imperial West ambitions, against the LTTE, who was a tool of USA and Britain to take-over SL, for its strategic value to dominate South East Asia and ultimately hit India. USA fears India would develop fast to be a superpower as well, in South East Asia. Hence USA and Britain’s agenda was to use LTTE to supply weapons to separatist movements in India, to engender revolutions in India by various states, to cry for autonomy. If India is broken-up it will be toothless. India realised this evil agenda of USA and Britain. Hence it was glad the evil, terrorist LTTE was totally irradicated by Hon Mahinda Rajapaksa. Hence India supported SL in this move, by no longer supporting LTTE against the GOSL.
Modus operandi used successfully by USA and its allies against Iraq, Libya will be repeated against Syria and Iran to capture their oil and gas stocks. The evil plans of the imperial West has to be defeated by the non-aligned nations, in union with Russia and China to provide the military muscle.
Did you conviniently forget the Chinese spy ship with 22 labs that called in at the Colombo Port last week?
Come-on JS, wise up!
US, UK, India, Russia and China, among other countries, have technologically advanced spying installations in their embassies, as well as a network of skilled human resources, on ground. They also buy-in the services of local agencies, both in government and outside and in the media, to feed them with a constant steady stream of a wide variety of information. This is the reality, the world we live in today.
So long as these countries do not interfere in the internal matters of SL and do not work to de-stablise the country, there is little we can do against spying, except to reciprocate in kind in their countries in a limited way, and keep tabs on the work of their spies in SL through our own network of spies/intelligence gatherers.
