Germany to keep close eye on new Lankan Government

Federal Foreign Minister Frank-Walter SteinmeierGermany says it will follow the upcoming formation of a new government in Sri Lanka with great interest, and looks forward to continuing Germany’s cooperation with Sri Lanka, which was intensified at the beginning of the year.

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said Germany welcomes the fact that, following the presidential elections at the beginning of the year, the parliamentary elections have also proceeded peacefully and smoothly.

“Free and fair elections are the key to a functioning democracy. The way in which these elections were held is therefore especially encouraging. With their high turnout and their involvement in the election campaign, the Sri Lankan people have shown how important their country’s democratic development is to them,” he said.

He also said that the Sri Lanka’s authorities and the EU election observers, whose report Germany eagerly awaits, deserve respect. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. UNP and Sirisena knows why we supported them in Jan 08 election. NOW THE NO ONE PRIORITY IS TO ESTABLISH FULL FEDERAL SYSTEM IN NORTH-EAST TAMIL HOMELAND. ALL THIS THANKS TO THE FIGHT BY OUR SUN GOD PRABHAKARAN.

    • Your so called Sun God Prabhakaran blew every opportunity he had to establish the full federal system. He stared the race well and but got carried away with his pride causing untold suffering to the innocent lives.

      He didn’t allow the people in the North to vote in 2014 thereby ducking his own grave.

      Now that he is gone, we hope and pray to the living God to save the Tamils

  2. Germany and EU must KEEP A CLOSE EYE TO SEE IF RANIL INTRODUCES FEDERAL SYSTEM WITH FULLEST POWERS………..THIS IS A MANDATE FOR FEDERAL SYSTEN IN COMBINE NE……..HIK HIK HI….SINHALAYA MODAYA KAWUM KANNA YODAYA……
