He was responding to reports that Iran was in talks with Sri Lanka to renegotiate the orders for three A350-900 aircrafts ordered by the last Government.

The former management of SriLankan Airlines had entered into a contract in 2013 with Airbus for the purchase of eight A350-900 aircrafts to replace the existing wide-body fleet.
