The Cabinet had approved the movement of the Consular Office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which was earlier planned to be set up in Vavuniya.
The Cabinet had already approved setting up of the Consular offices of the Foreign Ministry, at Vavuniya and Matara, for the people respectively in North and South to receive easily, the consular Service assistance of the Foreign Ministry.
However the NPC CM had pointed out that more people in Jaffna need the consular services of the Foreign Ministry.
Accordingly, the Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera had submitted a Cabinet paper for moving the intended consular office from Vavuniya to Jaffna.
The Cabinet had approved this paper last Tuesday.
