Germany said is supports a statement issued by the European Union on the situation in Sri Lanka.
“Germany stands fully behind EU’s statement,” the Germany Embassy in Colombo tweeted.
The EU had said in a statement that the decision of President Sirisena to dissolve the Sri Lankan Parliament ahead of its planned reconvening risks undermining public confidence in the country’s democratic institutions and processes and further deepens the political and economic crisis in the country.
“A fully functioning Parliament is an essential pillar of democracy. As a longstanding supporter of a democratic Sri Lanka, the European Union expects a swift and peaceful resolution of the current crisis, in line with the Sri Lankan Constitution,” the EU had said. (Colombo Gazette)
