In his letter addressed to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Mr. Wickremesinghe said the steps taken by her government to control the virus could be considered as best examples to be followed by other countries.
"The steps taken to control the spreading of COVID-19 virus by your government could be considered as best examples to be followed by other countries,” he said in his letter addressed to the German leader.
“ I am sure that dramatic and timely measures taken by your government has paved the way for Norway to relax some of the emergency measures taken to control the pandemic . It is heartening to note that Norway has been able to take control of the outbreak. The people of Norway possess the strength and courage required to overcome the pandemic and march towards prosperity,” he said in his letter addressed to the Norwegian Prime Minister.
