Senior Japanese diplomat Yasushi Akashi called on President Mahinda Rajapaksa this morning at the President’s House.

The President and Yashushi Akashi discussed a number of matters including progress on the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission, the overall reconciliation process and general bilateral relations between Sri Lanka and Japan.

The last time Akashi met President Rajapaksa was in Japan during the President’s official visit to the East Asian country earlier this year.

Following that meeting, Akashi said that “the post-conflict development in Sri Lanka was phenomenal.”

Akashi said everyone tends to judge situation from his or her own background.

Akashi said further that he feel that it is rather unfair for some developed countries, who have much more resources than Sri Lanka, to express impatience with Sri Lanka and its development.

Ambassador of Japan in Sri Lanka Nobuhito Hobo accompanied Akashi.
