Around 10 foreign diplomatic delegations have toured Sri Lanka since the beginning of this year.

These delegations held discussions regarding the current state of the North and East, resettlement, the political situation and current issues in the country.

In January the Emir of Qatar, Indian Foreign Minister S M Krishna and Indonesia’s Foreign Minister toured Sri Lanka.

Meanwhile, Palestinian President Mahmood Abbas, the all-party Indian delegation, the Foreign Minister of Seychelles, the EU parliamentary delegation and a representative of Israel’s Foreign Ministry visited Sri Lanka during April.

The beginning of May also saw the arrival of Japan’s Deputy Prime Minister.

It is noteworthy that a majority of these foreign delegations arrived in the island after the US sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka was passed at the Geneva Human Rights Council.
