The Sri Lankan government has urged the British Foreign and Commonwealth office to tone down a travel advice on Sri Lanka which was updated last month.

External Affairs Ministry spokesman Rodney Perera said that the Sri Lankan High Commission in London is pursuing the matter with the British authorities.

The Sri Lankan government had last September raised concerns with the British government over the travel advice and urged them to amend it.

Tourism industry officials in Sri Lanka had raised concerns over the impact the travel advice may have on British tourists visiting Sri Lanka.
