The United States says Parliament in Sri Lanka must decide who the Prime Minister is.
US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said that the United States continues to follow developments in Sri Lanka with concern.
“We urge all sides to refrain from intimidation and violence. We call on the President, in consultation with the Speaker, to immediately reconvene parliament and allow the democratically elected representatives of the Sri Lankan people to fulfill their responsibility to affirm who will lead their government,” Heather Nauert said.
