Pakistan’s military HC meets Sinhala nationalist SL Governor of Trincomalee

[TamilNet, Sunday, 31 May 2020, 23:09 GMT]
Pakistan’s High Commissioner Major General (retd) Muhammad Saad Khattak was visiting Trincomalee on Thursday to discuss economic assistance to Eastern Province from Pakistan, media reports in Colombo said. Khattak was posted to Colombo in January 2020 after Gotabaya Rajapaksa became the SL President. Khattak met with the extreme Sinhala nationalist SL Governor to East, Mrs Anuradha Yahampath at her office. The news was Colombo’s geopolitical message to the West and India, Tamil political observers in Trincomalee said.

Anuradha Yahampath operates against Tamil aspirations.

She was blaming Western countries as backing “pro-LTTE Tamil diaspora” in her addresses to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva in 2018.

Mrs Yahampath, who accompanied SL military personnel to Geneva in 2017 and 2018, was representing Global Sri Lankan Forum (GLSF) and International Buddhist Relief Organisation.

The GLSF outfit believes “Sri Lankan identity based on the Sinhala language and the Buddhist moral values” must be the “common heritage of the Sinhalese, the Tamils, the Muslims and the other ethnic groups” in the island.

Gotabaya Rajapaksa appointed Yahampath as the SL Governor to East to advance Sinhaliciation of the Eastern Province, the Tamil observers in Trincomalee said.

The Island reported on Sunday that the Pakistani HC had held “detailed discussions on all areas of mutual interest between the two countries, including assistance which can be provided by Pakistan to the Eastern Province.”

“They had also explored opportunities to enhance economic, educational, cultural, tourism and people to people links, with the eastern part of Sri Lanka,” the report said.
