US, UK raise concerns on dissolving Parliament in Sri Lanka

The United States and the UK have raised concerns over the decision taken by President Maithripala Sirisena to dissolve Parliament.

The US State Department said that the US is deeply concerned by news the Sri Lanka Parliament will be dissolved, further deepening the political crisis.

“As a committed partner of Sri Lanka, we believe democratic institutions and processes need to be respected to ensure stability and prosperity,” the US State Department said.

The UK Minister of State for Asia and the Pacific Mark Field said that he was concerned by news that Sri Lanka’s Parliament has been dissolved days before it was due to be reconvened.

“As a friend of Sri Lanka, the UK calls on all parties to uphold the constitution and respect democratic institutions and processes,” he said. (Colombo Gazette)
