Posted Date: 10/05/2018 (Thursday)
AS China's power and economic strength have grown, its practices in the outside world have come to appear increasingly out of synchrony with its declared bases for international relations. In negotiations with India in 1954, China proposed that relations between the two states should be founded on certain fundamental principles.

News: Crucial reconciliation steps in North
Posted Date: 09/05/2018 (Wednesday)
The Government which has expedited resettling Internally-Displaced People in Jaffna, will not compromise on national security by releasing the Army-held lands back to the rightful owners, the Security Forces Commander Jaffna, Maj. Gen. Dharshana Hettiarachchi said. He said that the Army was releasing lands not to meet demands of any political party but to reduce the number of IDPs languishing in centres for decades. “We can’t hold their lands forever. Eight years after ending the war, we want to handover some lands, which are not required for security purposes, back to the owners,” he said.

Therefore the TNA is planning to launch a non – violent protest campaign against the UNP- SLFP coalition Govt if it continues to procrastinate and dilly-dally on this issue.

News: SL’s external sector is under severe stress, contrary to Central Bank’s favourable comments

The Central Bank goes on to say that it has received favourable response from the international community for a proposed term loan of $ 1 billion which is to be utilised by the Government to repay more expensive existing debt.

Posted Date: 02/05/2018 (Wednesday)
1 We have talked about so many burning issues including the ones of UDAYANGA, MAHENDRAN and JALIYA, but we haven’t seen a single brought to conclusion. Either we await action from INTERPOL or our own sleuths. Going back on the local scenario, what happened with the findings on THAJUDEEN, LASANTHA, AVANT GARDE, ALOYSIUS, PALIASENA et al?
