US travel ban on Army Commander could harm diplomatic relations – Keheliya
The United States of America (USA), by restricting Army Commander Shavendra Silva and his immediate family members from entering the United States without making any inquiry from Sri Lanka, could harm diplomatic ties between the two countries, Investment Promotion State Minister Keheliya Rambukwella said.
He was addressing a media briefing at his residence in Kandy yesterday (16).
The State Minister said that making allegations against individuals in certain countries is happening worldwide and the measures adopted by the US against the Army Commander based on such allegations is unfair.
“A sovereign country appoints an Army Commander independently and if any country opposing it sans diplomatic measures, it should be investigated,” the State Minister said.

Dear Mr (Hon) Kehel-mala,
You reckon US will be affected by adverse diplomatic ties between US & SL?

Pariah Nations continue to be beggars.
