No one can harm US-Lanka relationship – Weinstein

Measures taken by the Sri Lankan government to uplift the livelihood of persons living in former war affected areas should be highly appreciated. The development in the country and its speed of achieving development goals are also highly laudable, Deputy Chief of Mission for the US Embassy in Sri Lanka William Weinstein said.

“America and Sri Lanka have had good relations from the past. No one can harm that relationship and friendship. We are always ready to support Sri Lanka to stand as a strong nation,” he said.

“We are ready to support the Sri Lankan government and all Sri Lankans,” he said. Weinstein expressed these views participating in the opening ceremonies of Mulankavil Hospital, Kilinochchi and Oddusudan Hospital, Mullaithivu.

These two hospitals have been established with US government aid.

Over USD 60 million have been spent on these projects. Hambanthota District MP Namal Rajapaksa laid the first foundation stone for these hospitals in 2011 and also participated as the chief guest at the hospitals’ opening ceremonies. Namal Rajapaksa, MP opened electricity projects and school buildings in Mulankavil area as well.

“We suffered for over three decades due to terrorism. We could not send our children to schools due to the scourge of terrorism. We lived in fear and never thought that we would be able to live in peace,” Mulankavil Rural Development Society Chairman P.Palan said.

“Now we have all the facilities, our children are going to school and learning well. We know that their future will be bright. The whole credit of creating a peaceful Sri Lanka should go to President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank President Rajapaksa on behalf of the residents of Mulankavil,” he said.

He said they only fear the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) because the TNA members are visiting several powerful countries, including America from time to time and are trying to create a wrong image about Sri Lanka, before the international community.

He requested the Deputy High Commissioner not to accept their criticism about Sri Lanka and not to take wrong decisions by listening to the TNA’s complaints.

Agriculture Minister Mahinda Yapa Abeywadena was also present.
