Sri Lanka backs China on Hong Kong issue

Sri Lanka has expressed support to China on the Hong Kong issue after China continued to face mounting criticism over a planned security law for Hong Kong which would make it a crime to undermine Beijing’s authority.

“Sri Lanka expressed continuity of its support on sovereignty of China its territory and national security in relation to Hong Kong,” Foreign Minister Dinesh Gunawardena tweeted.

He also said that Sri Lankans will continue to enjoy usual work and business in Hong Kong.

In response the Chinese Embassy in Sri Lanka tweeted saying China highly appreciated Sri Lanka’s strong position on the One China Policy.

“China & Sri Lanka, as strategic partners always support each other for the sovereignty, territorial integrity & independence. Won’t allow any foreign interference in our internal matters,” the Chinese Embassy tweeted. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. 1. Has no other choice in its current dire economic outlook with its burgeoning debt with China
    2. Gotabaya and his government are forever grateful that he was given the same kind of impunity to state’s oppression and crimes.

  2. Surprisingly, Sr Lanka has got this right.

    President Trump’s speech about the current protests in the US…

    “Rule of law is our foundation which led to prosperity. Where there is no law, no opportunity. Where there is no justice, no liberty. Where there is no safety, no future.”

    However, the US does not apply the same to the other countries when it comes to divide and conquer others. The West indirectly supported the Tamil diaspora to destroy Sri Lanka, and supported riots in Iraq, Libya, Hong Kong etc.
