Minister of External Affairs Professor G.L. Peiris says that there is a diplomatic and economic onslaught against Sri Lanka.

 

The minister expressed these views at the "Meet the Minister" programme held in Colombo, which was organised by the Organisation of Professional Associations.

 

"It is no mean achievement that the meeting of the Commonwealth Heads of Government is taking place in our country. As you are aware there was considerable opposition to that. There was considerable opposition. Don't forget that although the war has ended, some of the activities directed by the diaspora against Sri Lanka are continuing very much. What they are trying to do is isolate Sri Lanka diplomatically and economically. It is a diplomatic and economic onslaught against Sri Lanka," the minister stated.
