Minister Maithripala Sirisena has said that our country would have been placed in a better position internationally, if our Ambassadors who represent the country duly fulfilled their duties.
He said the diplomatic service consists mainly of officials who are much interested in enjoying themselves and providing overseas education for their children instead of fulfilling their responsibilities. He noted that the nature of Foreign Service had to be changed. The Minister was speaking at a ceremony organized to receive medical equipment donated by the Australian government. The donation is worth 35 million rupees.
