Lankan envoy in talks with US officials

21 February, 2021

Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to the United States (US) Ravinatha Aryasinha had a virtual discussion with Deputy Chief of Staff and Counsellor for International Affairs, Department of Justice (DoJ) Dan Stigall and senior officials earlier this week to follow-up on the charges filed last month by the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles against three Sri Lankans for “conspiring to provide material support to the ISIS” involved in the April 29 Easter Sunday bombings in 2019. All three are currently in Sri Lankan custody. The Ambassador also called for closer monitoring of the pro-LTTE organisations in the US, who contrary to US laws, were glorifying terrorism and martyrdom, while propagating hate speech and disinformation.
