Speaking to the BBC Sinhala service, Rajapaksa, the brother of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa said that the US had even noted at the end of last year that the change of Government in January last year was a victory for the US.

“They took efforts for a regime change in Sri Lanka and they had openly spoken about that, ” he said.

  1. If USA wanted regime change, why are you still holding US Citizenship? We all know that the reason for regime change, which was the requirement of the people of Sri Lanka and USA supported it. The reason RAJAPAKSE FAMILY AND THE STOOGES AROUND RAJAPAKSE.

  2. Sri Lanka is an agricultural economy dependent on the West for its very survival and China knows that too well.
    Your sovereignty is bullshit go for UN and Lankan idiots.
    Both China and Russia were built on American money and still cannot survive without exporting to the west.
