Sri Lanka says tracing origin of Covid should not be politicized

Sri Lanka says tracing the origin of the coronavirus should not be politicized.

The Foreign Ministry said that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused severe disruptions to the health, safety, and livelihoods of people around the world.

Therefore, multilateralism and international cooperation provide the best possible means to effectively and sustainably defeat the pandemic, the Foreign Ministry said.

The Foreign Ministry said that it is equally important to conduct a comprehensive, inclusive, and impartial study on the origin of the virus.

Sri Lanka noted the leading role played by the World Health Organization (WHO) in this regard and the contents of the joint report of the WHO–convened Global Study released in March 2021.

The Government reiterated that the study on the origin tracing of SARS-Co-V-2 should be based on scientific and evidence-based methods and should not be politicized. The next phase of the study should reflect the key findings of the previous WHO-led joint study report.

Sri Lanka says it will continue to constructively engage with all international partners to find amicable and comprehensive solutions to unresolved issues in this regard. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. This Antany is clearly what you call a “Bad-faith Actor” (Bad faith (Latin: mala fides) is a sustained form of deception which consists of entertaining or pretending to entertain one set of feelings while acting as if influenced by another. It is associated with hypocrisy, breach of contract, affectation, and lip service.)

    You can expose these “Bad-faith Actor” by dismantling their Gaslighting techniques taking away their power of confusion over you…

    Note how he defends China with no valid grounds even when my comment indicates what is expected is of any nation be it USA, Russia, India, China, UK or any European nation same level of scrutiny applies…

    1. Covid19 emerged out of China.

    2. They suppressed doctors who tried to war the government. “ Li Wenliang was detained by police in December after warning people about the new coronavirus on social media. His death has reignited outrage over the Communist Party’s lack of transparency and accountability.

    3. China delayed informing and sharing information with the WHO that contributed to the rapid spread.

    This is how “Bad-faith Actors” muddy and cloud your judgment so that they can feed you misinformation…

  2. You are fooling yourselves, if you think that you are going to survive by the vaccines to carry on your legacy (Legacy of breeding like rabbits).

    Most of South Asians have no idea how the US became superpower. Most of you would not question why I am unpopular and poorer than corrupt South Asian politicians who didn’t even pass GCE O/L. You continue to multiply foolishness in billions. Unfortunately, you would not understand my writings. The sooner you die is better for the environment and for 21st century humanity.

  3. Far more deadly viruses yet to be released to keep the West’s dominant power.

    Currently, people are dying all around the world, especially the death toll has been increasing in developing countries. Blame Bill Gates and the CIA for the disaster. Eventually, people will see the perpetrators clearly, but they cannot do anything about it. This is a battle between wise and powerful vs poor and foolish. Specifically speaking, the wise and powerful leaders want to keep their status, and also to make sure that poor and foolish people remain the same. Where the Western countries will end up, if India, South America and Africa use the massive population to create wealth and power as China does?

    China’s growth is astronomical, and the West is not happy at all. China didn’t create any virus to become the Second Biggest Economy in the world. Plus it will not jeopardize its global market through lockdowns and job losses. I believe that the West is behind the COVID 19 for the following reasons.

    The first reason is to isolate China to keep the West’s world dominant power.

    Second reason: Lockdowns create job losses and income losses. This reduces the people’s buying capacity (China’s products). This strategy slows China’s profits and growth, so the West has enough time to think and act to undermine China.

    Third reason: China has been using the massive population to create wealth through the manufacturing sector. India also follows China’s manufacturing strategy. If India comes up as China, the West will fall automatically. For this reason, as well as climate change issues, the West will do everything to reduce the population in developing countries. However, the West will continue to trick India that the West is willing to make India the world factory, but China is behind the COVID 19 to undermine India to divide and conquer Asians.

    Unfortunately, minority Westerners are fooling the world’s majority. Sadly, most people are happy to get a job to get married, have kids and grandkids, and die. This is their legacy, but they are not wise enough to think that every child they create puts pressure on the developing countries’ limited resources and forces them to rely on the West. This is what the West wants, it doesn’t want South Asia, Africa, or South America to utilise the people to come up as China does. Currently, China is a threat to the Western powers, because it is developing itself very quickly and enlightening the majority world to come out from the Western trap. Therefore, the West will continue to isolate China and get rid of the developing countries’ population through viruses. Otherwise, the West’s 700 hundred years of world dominant power will come to an end.

    In 2015, Bill Gates predicted the pandemic and concluded millions of people will die. “If anything kills over 10 million people in the next few decades, it’s most likely to be a highly infectious virus rather than a war,” Gates said. “Not missiles, but microbes.” Therefore, I believe that the worst is yet to come. He was revealing what the US was planning to do. The US playing wisely, but China is not. That is why Huawei is done, but Microsoft is doing well all around the world. The US can spy on others intelligently through Microsoft. The US government kept its distance from Microsoft by choosing Bill Gates to fool the world that Microsoft has nothing to do with the US government. Please note, the first email was used during the 2nd World War. It was a collective innovation by the talented Americans through the funds of the US government. I don’t believe that a university dropout can be the guru of Information Technology and the world pandemic. I believe that Bill Gates works closely with the US government and CIA. He is a mouthpiece of the American superpower.

  4. Gabriella and Sunil hide their identities to push the western propaganda. However, the people who do not live in their own country and their puppets will not succeed forever.

    President Trump said that it was hoked and it will disappear like magic. Later on, he was accusing China as it didn’t inform about the virus on time. My question is, what was the CIA did. In this case, you would think the Five Eyes’ intelligence has failed to get correct information about the pandemic. Ironically, according to their claim, they get credible information about China’s human rights abuses but they could not get the correct information about the pandemic. In January 2020, Australia had only a handful of COVID 19 cases. On 20 January 2020, the Chinese authorities confirm the virus can spread from person-to-person.

    However, the Five Eyes did not take it seriously, it had an ulterior motive. On 28 January 2020, Australia’s chief medical officer Brendan Murphy advises that “there is no need for the Australian public to wear masks” because there has been no human-to-human transmission in Australia. The government had failed to combat COVID 19, it should have made wearing masks mandatory and should have chosen a specific location to quarantine new arrivals from overseas; so the rest of the country could have functioned normally. Notably, former Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton done a perfect job isolating thousands of refugees, I do not believe he is incapable to isolate COVID 19 cases to protect Australians and the economy. It is clear, the Five Eyes has a plan to undermine China, specifically using COVID 19 to expanding its allies by demonising and isolating China to maintain its global dominant power. However, If the West is not careful, its strategy may lead to the 3rd world war and that will be the end of human civilisation.

  5. Regardless of how or where the virus originated, the fact is: it was China’s reticence to inform the World Health Organisation of the outbreak until it was late that facilitated its rapid spread around the globe, sans any containment measures. Nobody really gives a tinkers cuss what Sri Lanka thinks, but it adequately conveys to their Chinese masters that they (politicians) know not to “ bite the hand that feeds them.”

    • Yes Chinese suppression of doctors who tried to warn local Chinese authorities of the deadly virus and delay to share information with WHO contributed to a rapid global spread of SARS-Co-V-2

      Funny how they say “ The Government reiterated that the study on the origin tracing of SARS-Co-V-2 should be based on scientific and evidence-based methods and should not be politicized.”

      Is this how they approach the spread of SARS-Co-V-2 in Sri Lanka? Why are there problems with the data and contact tracing if so??

      No such scientific approach was facilitated and didn’t Government of Sri Lanka try to politicize it too??
