Embassy rejects the media reports saying there is a meeting between TNA and Mrs. Hillary Clinton but confirms that on May 18th, there will be a meeting between External Affairs Minister G.L Peiris and US Secretary of State in Washington.
“Recent media reports incorrectly state that Secretary Clinton has invited the TNA to visit Washington. The Secretary invited Minister GL Peiris to Washington on May 18 and welcomes that visit. While the United States seeks to engage with all political parties in Sri Lanka, there is no visit scheduled for the TNA, either before or after that meeting,” the U.S Embassy in Colombo announced.
