External Affairs Ministry former Secretary Karunatilaka Amunugama has been appointed as the new ambassador to Germany while former Ambassador Sarath Kongahage has been appointed as the new ambassador to South Africa.

Meanwhile Professor of Archaeology Sudarshan Seneviratne has been appointed as the new High Commissioner to India.

External Affairs Ministry Director General A.M.A. Saadic told our news team that the names of new appointees have already been submitted to the Parliament Committee on High Posts for approval.

However only the diplomatic officials who did not appear before the Parliament Committee on High Posts during the last five years are necessary to come before the Committee.

Once the new list of ambassadors is approved by the parliament committee, it will be gazetted.

Later the names should be endorsed by the respective countries as well.

The External Affairs Ministry Director General said that the US has already endorsed the name of Ambassador Prasad Kariyawasam.
