“ongoing assistance to meet the urgent needs of the Sri Lankan people” – What assistance to meet urgent needs of people has US given SL so far, in the context of current situation? Correct me if I am wrong, but I think it is Zippo! I guess the time is not ripe enough for a lavish handout from Uncle Sam. Many think time will be just right the day when SL agrees to all and every diktat from Uncle Sam, including changing of SL’s unacceptable (to Uncle Sam) neutral position vis-a-vis the Russia-Ukraine war. However, in the meantime Her Most Esteemed Highness Ambassador is doing a pretty good job supervising every key honcho in the SL Govt to ensure they are working hard and earning their paycheck – First Ranil then Ranil, then Dinesh, then Ali Sabba, etc. – i.e. much, much better than any CEO of SL has done to-date!
Dear Pathum, You are right when you say this remarkable lady met Ranil, then Dinesh, then Ali Sabri, AKD, etc. It seems she doesn’t have any work other than meeting with politicians in Sri Lanka. Besides, she also tweets like Donald Trump!
