Former Sri Lanka Minister Milinda Moragoda has been appointed special advisor on foreign policy matters to Sri Lanka's President Mahinda Rajapakse. Moragoda is to assume duties with immediate effect, according to Presidential Secretariat sources.
Moragoda served as a parliamentarian from 2001 to 2010.
He was not elected to parliament in the general election held in April 2010.
He served as a minister in the cabinet of Ranil Wickremasinghe and Mahinda Rajapakse.
Sri Lankan ‘terrorism’ professor Rohan Gunaratne recently came out with a list of names that Colombo should consider inducting into its foreign service to counter the Eezham Tamil diaspora in the West. Milinda Moragoda's name was one of them.
