No truth in the news report on the denial of US visa to Douglas Devananda

Colombo, 23 September, ( There is no truth in the news reports by a section of the media in Sri Lanka that Minister Douglas Devananda has been denied US Visa.

It was a mischievous canard, a source in the Sri Lanka’s Foreign Ministry said.

The source told “Asian Tribune” that there was a delay on the part of Minister Douglas Devananda to make the application to the US Embassy.

He further said as the Minister has unintentionally applied for the visa at the last moment and there might be a procedural delay in processing the visa application of the Minister at the US Embassy and nothing else.

Minister Douglas Devananda was a member of Sri Lanka President’s delegation for the UN General Assembly in 2006 as well as in 2007.
