Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to the United States Jaliya Wickramasuriya opined that one who does good for his or her country is always guaranteed of great satisfaction.
Addressing a large group of US-Sri Lankan community leaders in California at a dinner reception Ambassador Wickramasuriya informed that the time has never been so right for them to help their motherland.
“Doing something good for your country will always make you better. But helping your country now will make you feel far better as our motherland is doing very well”, he added.
The event was hosted by Dr. Hector Weerasinghe, Sri Lanka’s Consul General in California at his official residence in Los Angeles recently in honor of the Ambassador’s visit.
Ambassador further opined that great nations are made by the shared will of the people to act for their countries.
“As former United States President Late John F. Kennedy correctly put it-‘ask not what your country does for you but what you can do for your country’. This is the kind of attitude that made great nations like United States possible”, the Ambassador added.
Ambassador Wickramasuriya received a warm welcome from both Los Angeles city council and county authorities during his tour.
