Colombo says making inquiries on WikiLeaks reports

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 07 December 2010, 06:09 GMT]
Sri Lanka's foreign ministry, in the wake of the revelations by WikiLeaks of the U.S. diplomats accusing Sri Lanka's President and brothers of war-crimes, and of conducting an investigation that fails to meet international standards, said in the State run Dinamina Tuesday that the Ministry has launched its own "independent inquiries into the reports." Deputy Foreign Minister, Neomal Perera, did not elaborate on what additional details the Ministry was attempting to obtain beyond what's available in WikiLeaks website.

Mr. Perera also maintained that the American Embassy in Colombo has already expressed regret over the wikileaks reports and that the embassy had categorically stated that at no point did it wish to severe ties between the two nations.

Foreign Ministry has come under severe criticism for Mahinda Rajapakse's Oxford cancellation fiasco. In addition, having to respond effectively to the international reaction to war crimes accusation is likely to stretch the Ministry's intellectual and physical resources, according to political sources in Colombo.
