EU seeks timeline from Sri Lanka to address concerns on PTA

The European Union (EU) has sought a timeline from Sri Lanka to address concerns on the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA).

The issue had been discussed when an EU delegation held talks with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa today.

The President assured the EU that clauses of concern in the PTA will be amended soon.

The EU delegation is in Sri Lanka to review the GSP Plus trade concession provided to the country.

President Rajapaksa told the EU delegation that as the oldest democracy in the region, which has never been under a dictatorship or an authoritarian regime in any period of its history, Sri Lanka will provide solutions for issues through a democratic system.

The President also stated that the country would abide by the agreements on human rights in the world today.

The EU delegation said that a formal report based on the findings of the visit would be submitted to the European Commission and the European Parliament. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. South Asia has more population than China, but fell for the Western tricks. It has no chance to come out from it. An ideology has been shaped by the West for centuries to keep the Western world dominant power. The West and China think for centuries but South Asian leaders think only for the time being while they have political positions to rip off their country. This is why South Asia has no hope, and I would not waste my time in South Asia like Gotabaya Rajapaksa. I rather expose ruthless convicts to the world than wasting my time in South Asia. I determined to prove something to ruthless convicts; therefore, I would not move to Sri Lanka even if you offer me a highest position. I firmly believe that billons of people can only penetrate the Five Eyes through Australian convicts. I have been telling this to China for years. Now I start to ask Russia to lift its game and offer scholarships to First People of Australia. I will publish my latest communications with China’s and Russia‚Äôs Embassies soon.
