The BBC World Service reports that the Sri Lanka’s government has accused David Cameron of breaching protocol on his visit to the country, during which he raised concerns over alleged human rights abuses.
The BBC cites a Sri Lankan government source as saying that Cameron had “breached protocol several times”. It was alleged that he had “brushed aside” the main Tamil local official in visiting a displacement camp, when he should have been escorted by him.
The source had told the BBC that Cameron had “declined to sign the national visitors’ book” or “acknowledge a dance reception on arrival as he should have done.”
The source is reported to have said: “We thought Britain would do better. They are the ones who taught us protocol.”
