25.Feb 2021

The Leader of the United National Party and former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe states that withdrawal from the infrastructure and aid projects with India, Japan and the U.S. is a serious mistake.

In an interview with WION news, he stated that Sri Lanka has had several power and infrastructure projects planned out for the future.  Wickremesinghe noted that while some agreements were signed with China, a number of other agreements were signed with countries such as India, Japan and USA.

Wickramasinghe further stated that China cannot fill the gap created through the withdrawal of these agreements, that those projects are essential.

He also mentioned that the visit by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan was an overdue one, adding that Islamabad and Colombo maintain a great diplomatic relationship.
