News: Fears that Sri Lanka death penalty moves will hit GSP+ access
Posted Date: 12/07/2018 (Thursday)
Fears are rising that Sri Lanka’s plans to execute drug dealers, ending a 42-year moratorium on carrying out the death penalty, may endanger the GSP+ free trade concessions with the European Union (EU), industry analysts say. The European Union frowns on the death penalty, which is no longer carried out in many countries, and calls itself 'the leading institutional actor and largest donor in the fight against death penalty worldwide'. "Capital punishment is inhumane, degrading and unnecessary," the European Commission says.

News: Sushma Swaraj’s gumption and India’s abiding arrogance
Posted Date: 12/07/2018 (Thursday)
The Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, addressing top diplomats posted in neighbouring countries (July 3, 2018), opined that India should not focus on competing with China on resources. That’s sensible considering resource-mismatch. She also said that India must closely watch all Chinese activities. That’s sensible too, considering India’s economic and strategic interests in the region. This (and what follows) has been reported in the Hindustani Times of July 8, 2018. ‘Debt trap’ is not something that naive leaders of nations walk into blindly She has also said, ‘India must push ahead with full vigour its own work, presumably in neighboring countries. That also makes sense if ‘work’ is about building houses, bridges, roadways and railways, or if it is about trade agreements that are mutually beneficial and not heavily tilted in India’s favour nor scripted in ways that India can interfere in Sri Lanka’s domestic affairs.

News: Namal in Jaffna says:TNA on Govt side
Posted Date: 12/07/2018 (Thursday)
The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) is not focusing on the immediate issues of the North but instead concentrates on Constitutional reforms, said MP Namal Rajapaksa yesterday (11) while addressing a press conference in Jaffna. “The TNA isn’t the Opposition; they are on the Government’s side. They are the Opposition for name- sake. When young people are asking for jobs, the TNA leader says they can’t talk about jobs and they have to talk about the Constitution. How can this be an Opposition?,” said the MP. When queried on the issues of people who went missing during the war period, MP Rajapaksa said the previous Government had their own mechanism to address this issue based on the recommendations of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC).

News: India Needs More Spice and Courage in its Foreign Policy:Tamils for Trump
Posted Date: 12/07/2018 (Thursday)
A spokesman for Tamils for Trump has raised a question about the future Indian role in Sri Lanka and their silence concerning the Tamils’ suffering in their homeland. With regard to India’s promise to form a cooperative federalist government, Tamils are anxious to hear from Prime Minister Modi. The following statement has been released to the media by Tamils for Trump. India thought vanquishing the Tamil Tigers would swing the Sri Lankan Sinhalese over to their side. But recent events show otherwise. India had Sri Lankan Tamils as her trump card, to control Sri Lanka to her advantage, but she lost this trump card when she gave Sri Lankans unlimited power to pound the Tamils.

News: The Cry Behind The Provocative Call For A Return Of The LTTE
Posted Date: 12/07/2018 (Thursday)
Just as in the south in the Sinhalese-majority areas where ethnic nationalism is being used for political advantage, a similar phenomenon is taking place in the north and east of the country in the Tamil-majority areas. It is being used in the north, among others, to protest against the increase in criminal activities that most recently included the rape and murder of a six year old child. The rise in ethnic nationalism is taking place with a corresponding decline in the electoral strength of those who are taking moderate and non-racist positions. This was visible at the recently concluded local government elections where nationalist parties improved their performance at the cost of moderate parties both in the north and south. Former Minister of State for Child Affairs and member of the government, Vijayakala Maheswaran has shown this political propensity to exploit the latent ethnic nationalism of

News: GOTABHAYA, VIYATH MAGA, 13A and ME
Posted Date: 12/07/2018 (Thursday)
Rear Admiral Sarath Weerasekara writes that "After the 2015 Presidential election, for reasons better known to DJ, he approached GR and joined Viyath Maga." That’s a blatant lie. As Dullas Alahapperuma and Matale Mayor Mohammed Hilmy will attest, "After the 2015 presidential election" I met ex-President Rajapaksa at Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa’s residence on January 10th and rolled out a recovery strategy centered on Dinesh Gunawardena in Parliament. Furthermore, as Dinesh Gunawardena, Vasudeva Nanayakkara, Dullas Alahapperuma, Udaya Gammanpila MP and Wimal Weerawansa would attest, I spent weeks meeting them at my home and that of others, working out the revival of the Opposition. It was at such a working dinner that the idea of the Nugegoda meeting was arrived at. I still recall Wimal looking up from his plate and saying "kavuru nokarath ehnang mama oya rasveema sanvidhanaya karanava!" Admiral Weerasekara must understand why I was invited to read out President Rajapaksa’s message at Nugegoda on Feb 18th 2015.

News: India will adopt a three-pronged strategy to check China influence
Posted Date: 11/07/2018 (Wednesday)
In meetings with ambassadors Suhsma Swaraj reiterated, India must continue to closely watch all Chinese activities, and advise and educate friends in the neighbourhood about how a certain kind of economic engagement with Beijing can have negative consequences for them. India will adopt a broad, three-pronged approach to deal with China’s increasing engagement in the South Asian and Indian Ocean neighbourhood — track Beijing’s activities carefully; pursue its own projects and commitments; and educate and advise neighbours on the consequences of engaging with China.

News: Asia after liberal international order
Posted Date: 11/07/2018 (Wednesday)
With the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States, the West suddenly woke up with an acute anxiety about the fate of the US-led liberal international order. Until then, the liberal establishment in the United States had assumed that Hillary Clinton would succeed Barack Obama as president and ensure continuity in the liberal order. They ignored or dismissed warnings about the order’s crisis and decline. The belief in the resilience of the liberal order changed dramatically on November 6, 2016. What is the liberal order? It is an international system created and managed by the United States after World War II to promote capitalism and democracy through building alliances and multilateral institutions. Its supporters portray the liberal order as an open, rules-based and multilateral system that operates through consent rather than coercion.

News: India's diplomatic victory By gaining access to Sri Lanka’s Mattala Airport, New Delhi has scored a silent victory over China. By Barun Das Gupta
Posted Date: 11/07/2018 (Wednesday)
India’s diplomatic victory Last week, Sri Lanka finally agreed to let India operate the Mattala Airport situated about 40 km north-east of the Hambantota seaport that China has built in the southern tip of the island nation. China has acquired 60 per cent stake in the project as Sri Lanka was unable to repay the debt to the Chinese company that built it. India has thus scored a quiet but important diplomatic victory over China in Sri Lanka. Beijing was dead against India taking over the Mattala Airport. In the Sri Lankan Parliament, the Opposition led by former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa's Sri Lanka Freedom Party asked the government whether it was handing over the Mattala to India "to please the superpowers India and China".

News: Making public transport safe for women
Posted Date: 10/07/2018 (Tuesday)
A majority of women in Sri Lanka have endured sexual harassment on public transport, and incidences of harassment continue to increase daily despite continuous efforts to combat sexual violence, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and National Council for Road Safety, Sri Lanka, claimed recently. Research released in 2015 by UNFPA, offers a view into women’s vulnerability to violence and discrimination, issues that are poorly understood - both in Sri Lanka and globally - because of underreporting and lack of data. It reveals that around 90 per cent of women and girls who use public transport services have endured sexual harassment. Despite the low frequency of formal data, these problems are all too common to women and girls.
