“If I’m formally requested to represent my country once again, I shall be glad to accept it, Dr Dayan Jayatilleka told Colombo Telegraph.
He made above remarks when asked to comment on exclusive Colombo Telegraph story last night. Last night when asked for a comment he said, at that time he was not aware of it.
Sri Lanka’s former Permanent Representative to the United Nations in Geneva Dr Dayan Jayatilleka is to be appointed as the Ambassador to Russia, Colombo Telegraph learns.
President Maithripala Sirisena has made this decision to which Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has not objected.
Dr Jayatilleka was a strong confidante of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa and has of late backed a probable presidential bid by Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
