US Refutes Claims That Is Has Softened Stance On Sri Lanka

The US has vehemently refuted media reports, which claimed that the US has softened its stand on Sri Lanka with regard to the human rights situation in the country.

Earlier this week it was reported in Daily Mirror quoting ‘government sources’ that President Rajapaksa has told during a Cabinet meeting that his discussions with US Secretary of State John Kerry were ‘fruitful’ and that it has made him realize that the US has softened its stance on Sri Lanka.

A news item published in the Indian News Agency – PTI however, has quoted the State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki as stating that the only facts that are accurate in the reports is the fact that US Secretary of State John Kerry did meet President on the margins of the UN General Assembly.

“He did so with the express purpose conveying that US policy with regard to Sri Lanka has not changed and it certainly changed and it certainly has not softened,” she noted.

She has gone on to state that the US would like the relations with Sri Lanka to reach its full potential but has emphasized on the fact that it would happen only if Sri Lanka builds ensuring peace and prosperity for all ethnic and religious communities.

“And that is why the Secretary in no uncertain terms, made clear to the President that Sri Lanka needed to take meaningful steps to act like a country that is no longer at war and instead is now building a future that includes all of its citizens. So it certainly had the opposite purpose,” Psaki has remarked.

    Given the number of cockups around the world, the least Jen Psaki and the state dep can do is ditch their condescending advise.

        YES…US has softened its stance due to the anti Muslim stance taken by the Rajapkse Mercenaries Inc.

        The US (Zionists) needs agents all over world to do their bid in mass murder on depopulation programming envisioned by almost all the US,UN, Europe leaders to the birth of almost complete New World Order.

        Mahinda is the ideal candidate for their murder projects and cover up of NWO secret plans of murders. So, the US/Israeli Zionist programme needs his services. Therefore, the new agenda in making big business alliance (socio economic n military) with Israel is made known as a result.

        Anti Muslim pogroms are given a new lease with US approval and importing the 969 animal as a display of that fact. JHU/BBS/Mahinda evil axis is planning for the mass murder in 2015.

        Mahinda gave a coded message to the Islamic world that “I will protect the Muslims as my brothers”….

        Which must be read as ” I will kill them all and then protect the few whether you like it or not (as its already planned by JHU and propagated by Gammanpila & Champika)…..and if the Muslim needs protection then its only me who can protect them….kind of thing.

        This is the same thing Gamini Dissanayake openly said during 83 riots that the UNP racists launched against the Tamils then.

        Mahinda will meet his Waterloo when the US racist Zionists start the WW3 with Russia.

        Gnaney knows his limits. He has to perform in threatening the Muslims and Christians with violence and if not he will lose his life.

        Mahinda is the Sinhala vesion of the Zionist Master Plan in the apocalyptic disaster designed for the world by the Zionist Mass Murderers.

        Lying is second nature to our man. His trail of lies to the Indian leaders in New Delhi is legendary to the extent it looks
        like the Indians will insist on written assurances on what MR says he will do in the future. Yes! I agree – there is no guarantee the man will try to slip out of these too.

        I am reminded of the famous exchange between Minister IMRA Irriyagolla and Akurana’s DGH Sirisena in the 1960s – the latter being owner of a fireworks (cheena patas) retail shop at Norris Road – across the Fort Railway Station – whose trade name, as I recall, was Alidon. IMRA said there are two varieties of pachayas – the ali pachayas and the don pachayas. Referring to Sirisena IMRA jokingly said the MP was a combination of both and called him an Ali-Don pachaya.

          Dear Dr. B.I. Passe ,

          Thank you for that little insight story of “Ali Don ” , remember how Indian and US diplomats described MR’s assurances (Wi-Ki leaks) and David Miliband’s appropriate vocabulary to describe MR !

    I wonder if the Daily Noise will report this. Rajapaksa has been called a liar again this time by America. India called him a liar many times before. Rajapaksa has lost credibility so badly that he is becoming a laughing stock. Paw ane?

      No government in the world believes him. The press releases issued by the GOSL always tells a tale which is completely opposite to what was actually discussed. Ban Ki Moon, Manmohan Singh, Cameron, and now Kerry have all been subjected to the lie factory. Not only the President and GL are considered as jokers, but as a result, Sri Lanka itself has become a joke country with the governments that actually matter to Sri Lanka in terms of trade and tourism. We can say ‘palayang’ to the US of course, and lose $2 billion in trade concessions and the same amounts of disaster with the UK,EU and Canada, and soon with the Arab countries sending back our 1+ million toilet cleaners now that we have tied up with the Butcher of Burma. Soon we can go back to eating mannocca, or rice from the moon as Mrs.B promised us.

        Kevin – You said it right and the same communique from the Govt
        also stated that Mr. Modi has asked the President to convey to
        TNA that he cannot provide a Special envoy to deal with the Tamil
        issue. This matter was discussed by TNA during their visit to Delhi prior to Modi/Rajapakse meeting at the UN, and TNA was told that his ambassador In SL will do that job for him. TNA remains mum on the statement as they are sure that Mr. Modi will get the job done.

        No country will take us seriously if the administrators of our
        Country keep lying, GL Peiris in particular.Our relationship with Europe, USA is equally important as that of China and India as SL cannot stand on their own legs and needs help in several areas.We
        should take India as an example as they have good relationship with most countries, even with their enemies Pakistan and China. We do not lose anything if we stay friendly with all countries
        and in fact we gain

    Never mind the tough looks and finger pointing by the ugly woman, the Brits and the Yankees know very well that they cannot push their selective agenda on the small island nation that had eliminated terrorism for good without the expressed assistance of India. Now that Amma is in jail for corruption, vociferous LTTE rump drug pedlers, smugglers and racketeers seems to have gone with the wind.

      We must at least thank her for confirming the duplicitous nature of US activity. The President obviously was too easily taken in by Kerry’s words.
