Sri Lanka’s new prime minister D. M. Jayaratne Wednesday morning urged all political parties irrespective of ‘caste, creed and race,’ to unite in defeating international pressure being exerted on the Sri Lankan state. The move comes a day after US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian affairs Robert Blake had met President Mahinda Rajapaksa in Bhutan.

Robert Blake is leading the U.S. observer delegation to the South Asia Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Summit in Thimpu, from April 28-29 Monday.

Jayaratne came with the appeal to work against international pressure at an event held after assuming duties at the Prime Minister’s office Wednesday morning.
