A three-day workshop for Sri Lanka’s Heads of Mission is scheduled to be held from 7th to 10th July.
The participants for the workshop are expected to assemble in Colombo on the 6th July and they will be taken to Diyatalawa for the first segment of the workshop.
In Diyatalawa the workshop will be held on 7th and 8th and subsequently the participants are to be flown to Kilinochchi for another day workshop.
On the 10th of July they will return to Colombo.
It is learnt that the Government is of the view that Sri Lankan Head of Missions have to be informed of the government policies and political alliances after America’s resolution against Sri Lanka was passed at the last 19th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.
This is the first time the Government has invited to Sri Lanka its entire diplomatic heads for such a workshop.
As the workshop is planned to be held in the first week of July, many Head of Missions and Head of Posts have already begin to leave for Sri Lanka in advance.
In the meantime it is understood that Sri Lanka’s Deputy Permanent Representative in Geneva Manisha Gunasekera will be single headedly handling the 20th session of the UN Human Rights Council which commence today and conclude by the first week of July.
