Amb. Karunasena Hettiarachchi
Amb. Karunasena Hettiarachchi is the Ambassador of Sri Lanka to Germany since 2017. Prior to this position he was the head of the Ministry of Defense in Sir Lanka.
Sri Lanka and Germany have had solid cooperative relations for more than 60 years. Since early 2015, the diplomatic relations between the two countries have gained momentum. In May of 2015, the Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Samaraweera came for several days on an official visit to Germany, where he met several German high-level officials.
In February 2016, the Sri Lankan President Sirisena also paid a visit to the German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Germany is active in Sri Lanka in many ways and is respected and valued as a reliable partner. Together with its EU partners and other Western countries, Germany closely follows the human rights’ situation and the development of the humanitarian condition in Sri Lanka.
