Envoys in Geneva are Vagrants, – Sri Lanka minister Mervyn Silva

There will be no room for foreign conspiracies if the Ministry of External Affairs too, existed under President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Minister Mervyn Silva says.
Speaking at a meeting at the Colombo Hyde Park yesterday (11), he said that envoys in the Geneva Human Rights Commission are vagrants who are jealous of Sri Lanka and President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

However, the Sri Lankan government is not prepared to dance to the tunes of the international community, he emphasized.

‘I call upon the Geneva envoys to come to Sri Lanka and see. I also declare that the citizens of Sri Lanka will not be their followers. We can stand on our own feet,’ he further said.
