This is a very incisive interview with Tamara Kunanayakam, a former ambassador to the UNHRC in Geneva. In a no-nonsense manner she unravels why the pursuit of Sri Lanka by the Western nations is taking place.
She also attests to the ‘own goals’ scored by Sri Lankan diplomats after her time. Unfortunately, in my humble opinion the current Sri Lankan diplomats with a few exceptions do not have the diplomatic skills to counter the wiles of the Western diplomats. Moreover, she blames the inconsistencies in foreign policy by the GoSL of various hues that have been utilised by the enemies of Sri Lanka to fit their geo-political agenda.
