Trump refuses to talk to Mahinda! Featured

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s efforts to congratulate American President Donald Trump by telephone over the past few weeks has been unsuccessful.

Previous regime’s Minister Basil Rajapaksa is currently in the US and have met with several US State Department officials in a desperate bid to obtain an appointment with the American President.

Based on advice received by an official at the US State Department, a staff head at the former President’s office had contacted a high ranking official at the US President’s office and requested a telephone dialog with Trump. However, the former Sri Lankan President’s representative was informed that such dialog with a former President was not entertained by the US and had disconnected the call.

It was ironic however, that the US officer who had taken the telephone call was unaware of Sri Lanka’s existence, a Joint Opposition MP told Sri Lanka Mirror.
