Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says Chinese projects launched by the previous regime are being reviewed but some projects have already been cleared.
The Prime Minister was responding to a question raised by a foreign journalist while having a chat after the Prime Minister met the media briefly last week after winning the Parliamentary election.
“We are reviewing it and we have already started some of them. We will decide on the other projects as well. The process is on,” he said.
The Prime Minister also said that Sri Lanka’s foreign policy will be discussed with Parliament in order to reach the best possible policy framework.
“We will discuss all our foreign and internal policies when the President convenes parliament on September 1. All matters will be discussed with the parry leaders and we will debate on what should be the basic policy framework,” he said.
Asked how he intends on balancing ties with India and China, the Prime Minister said that Sri Lanka will work with both countries based on its foreign policy. (Colombo Gazette)
