US Ambassador to Sri Lanka - Open Letter

Dear Mr. Blake,

I write this letter as a friend of Sri Lanka and a US citizen. I represent the Sri Lankan Americans for President Obama.com.
I am aware you will be returning to the US to assume your new position as Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia. At that time I hope you listen to some in our group so that together we could help formulate policies for the mutual interest of the US and Sri Lanka.
We are dedicated to the ideals of Democracy with a heavy reliance on the principals of Minority rights, the Rule of Law, Transparency and above all Accountability.
Our group is dedicated to help you and President Obama , articulate a policy so that we can help Sri Lanka live in peace and harmony with all its diverse peoples accepting the 13th Amendment to the constitution of Sri Lanka.
We are prepared to go a step beyond articulating these principles, as some of us are prepared to go to Sri Lanka and work with the Sri Lankan government of the day to help them achieve these goals, without expecting any monetary benefits in return.
Finally it is our hope that all the diverse groups in Sri Lanka, will live in peace and harmony, and we the Sri Lankan Americans above all value minority rights as we are minorities in this great country which we call the USA.
Hoping to hear from you soon.
With best wishes,
