Lanka’s problem and international media


Dr Palitha Kohona is mistaken in thinking that there has been a crescendo of alarmist commentary in the Western media regarding the political uncertainty in Sri Lanka.

Though the quality press in the UK has covered the matter, the TV channels, including Channel 4 News, have not given any coverage. The only international media organisation that has given considerable time to the topic is Al Jazeera. No cabinet minister in the UK has said anything and there have not been any questions in parliament. The British public are barely aware of the situation.

If Dr Kohona does not consider a country having two politicians both claiming to be the legitimate Prime Minister a crisis, perhaps he should tell us what it is?
