I would blame MR.R for that. USA did not help LTTE directly or indirectly, not like some EU countries. Even they helped/shared with Srilanka some startegic information. But when MR.R decided to lick Iran and Lybia's @$$es....all problems started.
According to Peiris, the President has appointed Samarasinghe as the head of the Sri Lankan delegation in order to insult him.
The Minister has said that since Samarasinghe had not been assigned the Human Rights portfolio by a gazette notification, the delegates at the UNHRC sessions had ignored him.
Peiris has explained that Sri Lankan ambassador to Geneva, Tamara Kunananyagam s actions have also had an adverse impact on the country during the sessions.
He has said that she was once removed from her post following a medical report that she not in a stable mental condition to hold any office.
He has added that the President has ignored concerns raised by him about Kunanayagam because the President had stayed at Kunanayagam s residence in Geneva when he had traveled there as an ordinary MP.
However, Peiris believes that the resolution could have been avoided if the government met with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The Minister has observed that Clinton had asked him to visit Washington and that the President has asked him not to travel there and the issue has now become compounded as a result.
Peiris has pointed out that the President has not made any effort to speak to either the US President or Secretary of State to resolve this issue and that he had also been asked not to deal with the US.
The Minister has said the President s stubborn behavior was having an adverse impact on the government.
