Joint opposition MP Wimal Weerawansa today asked Foreign Affairs Minister Tilak Marapana whether the US has been allowed to set up a naval base in Trincomalee.

The minister told Mr. Weerawansa to inquire about it from the Ministry of Defence because it was a matter that came under its purview.

“I am not aware it is not a matter that comes under my ministry,” Mr. Marapana said. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

    Wimal, no point asking even the defence guys, ask Ranil. RW does things without telling anyone else.
