Sri Lanka is an island nation with a population of just over 6 million people, but its language has become synonymous with the countrys struggles with its current president, Mahinda Rajapaksa, as he has repeatedly sought to impose a Tamil language in the country.
The Sri Lankan government is seeking to bring the country’s “Sri Lankaan language” to the international arena in a bid to secure international recognition of the country, and its leader, in an upcoming summit with the United States.
Sri Lanka has long resisted the demand that the country be recognised as a sovereign nation with its own constitution.
In recent years, the government has sought to persuade foreign nations to adopt the country as a state language, and the effort has gained momentum over the past year.
The United States has long opposed such efforts, but it recently granted Sri Lanka an official language, which it is now using for official purposes.
The government is now seeking to persuade other nations to recognize the country in the same way, as well as its regional neighbours, including China, and Russia.
According to the latest figures, the number of people with Sri Lankans language is estimated at about 10 million, with the majority of them living in the southern provinces of Colombo and Mysore.
While Sri Lankang is spoken by approximately 40% of the population, the country has a total of 5 million people with the language, according to the National Language Centre.
The number of Sri Lankians in the international community, however, has decreased from 1.4 million in 2010 to 1.1 million in 2017.
The majority of international students studying in Sri Lanka are from the south, but the country is also home to several other languages, including Tamil, and Chinese.
“Sr Lanka is in a difficult position,” said Dr Mahinda Natarajan, director general of the International Language Centre at the University of California, San Francisco.
“It is a language that is very important for our people.
It is the language that our grandparents spoke and is the mother tongue of our people,” he said.
The country has faced a number of challenges, including a rise in crime rates, an influx of migrants, and political upheaval.
However, Dr Nataras recent efforts to promote the use of the Sri Lankani language have been successful, with a number the country government has signed up to a “socially-financed project” that aims to make the language “a universal language”.
The Sri Lanka government has also pledged to give “a financial reward” to anyone who speaks Sri Lankian.
“The government is keen to promote Sri Lanka as a nation of people who understand and speak its language and the government is committed to ensure that the government does all it can to facilitate its nationalisation and nationalisation of the language,” said Natarakan.
The aim of the project, he said, was to “give all the people of Sri Lanka the ability to understand, understand and use its language, including its regional languages.”
The Sri Lanka Government is hoping that international recognition would allow it to negotiate with other nations, and negotiate a deal on the issue of a Sri Lankanian language in a summit with other countries.
The proposal has been met with support from other countries, including Germany, but India has also expressed its opposition to the plan.
The plan to introduce the language has been opposed by many within Sri Lanka, including some of the most powerful members of the government.
“If you take Sri Lanka to the United Nations and you introduce Sri Lankaan into the language list, they will consider that you have been a member of the United Nation for a long time,” said Sri Lanka-based politician, Tamil Nadu state senator, P. Ramakrishnan.
“They will not accept the idea of Sri Lankan being a national language.”
The plan has faced strong opposition from many within the country and among the international media, with many media outlets criticising it as a “monstrous proposal”.
The government also faces a major challenge in promoting the language in its home territory of Tamil Nadu, which has been the country of choice for the majority ethnic Sri Lankas since the country was separated from Sri Lanka in 1962.
“We will have to be realistic.
We are trying to make our people understand,” said Tamil Nadu chief minister O. Raja.
“What we want is to have a government that can talk about the problem of poverty and hunger, and a government in which the people are well-informed and can speak the language.
We have a long way to go,” he added.
