Your Excellencies,
 
It is my pleasure, this evening, to welcome all of you today to the Republic building, having been sworn in early this week as the Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Sri Lanka’s best beaches

Sri Lanka’s best beaches

30th July 2015 Unawatuna Unawatuna is the default beach destination for people on shorter vacations. Unawatuna can be walked from end to end in under 15 minutes, and the small bay keeps waves relatively small. While not the place for surfing, calm swimming and soft sand make Unawatuna a great family choice in Sri Lanka.The real appeal of Unawatuna is the accessibility; a small access road parallels the beach and keeps people off of the busy main highway. The narrow road is lined with small shops, guesthouses, and eateries. With calm water and the isolated ‘Jungle Beach’ just a short walk away for snorkeling, Unawatuna is an excellent choice for snorkeling and turtle-spotting...

Such charm !, History, elephants, tea

Such charm !, History, elephants, tea

Wednesday, 15th July 2015 By Zhou Yubin and Tong Wangyue A tea plantation in Nuwara Eliya — Yang Xisheng BEFORE our trip to Sri Lanka, a friend told us that the country enjoys a reputation as a “combination of India, Kenya and the Maldives.” It has India’s Buddhist culture, Kenya’s wild animal safaris and Maldives beaches. We haven’t been to any of those three countries, but we did spend five days in Sri Lanka and found no end of diversity to please any visitor. You can drive from tranquil beaches into lush mountains, visit a Hindu temple just five minutes’ walk from a magnificent Catholic church, and enjoy a safari and a game of golf on the...

Winning Sri Lanka’s peace

Winning Sri Lanka’s peace

8 April 2015 OPINION Commentary / World By Ranil Wickremesinghe Winning a war or revolution, only to lose the subsequent peace, is one of the grim political truths of our time. In Iraq, a quick military victory over Saddam Hussein’s regime soon gave way to insurgency, civil war and the rise of the murderous Islamic State. In Libya, Syria, Yemen and elsewhere, the hopes unleashed by the Arab Spring have similarly turned into an often-violent despair. Today, a half-decade after the end of its 36-year civil war, Sri Lanka is at a crucial moment in its own efforts to consolidate peace and secure its long-term benefits. Newly elected President Maithripala Sirisena...
