Chinese state councilor congratulates Sri Lanka’s new FM

Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Sunday congratulated Dinesh Gunawardena on assuming office as Sri Lanka’s Foreign Minister, the Xinhua news agency reported.

In his congratulatory message, Wang said China and Sri Lanka have always been treating each other with respect and equality since the establishment of their diplomatic relationship 62 years ago, and have formed a strategic cooperative partnership that features sincerity, mutual assistance and generations of friendship.

The two nations, under the guidance of high-level exchanges and on the platform of the Belt and Road Initiative, have actively expanded their cooperation and seen more frequent people-to-people exchanges, which have yielded fruitful results in recent years, Wang said.

Wang also said that he would like to join efforts with Gunawardena to consolidate the traditional friendship between both countries, enhance communications and cooperation in various fields, and make contributions to better development of China-Sri Lanka relations.


  1. If you Chinese predators are sincere about your commitment to Sri Lanka, then, provide our hospitals with the cutting-edge technology first world hospitals have.

    And, don’t engage in mere token acts of “generosity” every time one of your “development projects” are exposed as a SCAM !

    To date, Chinese conduct in Sri Lanka has been more disgraceful than the Indian scum who ‘fanned the flames’ of our etnic war.
