SLMC Displeased With Blake

Sep 15, 2011 8:16:54 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) has expressed its dissatisfaction over the failure of US Assistant Secretary of State Robert Blake to meet with any Muslim political leaders during his official visit to the country.

The SLMC has said that Blake should have met the Muslim political representatives if the US was keen on discussing a solution to Sri Lanka’s ethnic issue.

SLMC Chairman and Deputy Minister Basheer Segudawood has told the media that the Muslim community had also been severely affected by the three decade long war.

He has said the Muslim community should also be considered when discussing a political solution to the ethnic issue.

However, he has added that the SLMC was unaware as to why Blake did not meet any Muslim leaders during his visit.
