China says Sri Lanka should receive the support of the international community in achieving its objectives having rid itself of terrorism and embarked on the course of accelerated economic development.

China’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Yang Jiechi, told visiting Minister of External Affairs Prof. G.L. Peiris in Beijing that China, for her part, would make the maximum effort to fulfil Sri Lanka’s needs as the country addresses itself to the task of attempting to use its natural strengths to improve the lives of its citizens, with the dawn of peace and stability. 

“Countries big and small have their own problems, and it is important to remember that solutions have to be found to suit the circumstances of each situation in keeping with the wishes of the country in question without hectoring or pressure from outside,” the External Affairs Ministry today quoted the Chinese Foreign Minister as saying.

Minister Peiris informed China’s Foreign Minister that the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission appointed by President Mahinda Rajapaksa had held its first public sitting on the previous day and commenced its work.

It is of the utmost importance that the Commission should receive every encouragement from the international community to begin and continue its work, Minister Peiris observed.

Meanwhile in an address delivered to the China Institute of International Studies, which was attended by leading members of the diplomatic community and representatives of local as well as international media in Beijing, Prof. Peiris explained Sri Lanka’s experience in defeating terrorism and putting the country on the fast track of economic development and national reconciliation.

    It´s high time Sri Lanka learns to stand on own legs and not be dependant on foreign donations for the development of the country.
    In a world where natural catastrophies seem to be more and more the order of the day, increasing demands of help for countries and districts are raising all the time. The international community can´t afford to finance it all and must prioritize. Besides, many countries in Africa face even normally much harsher conditions and need more help than Sri Lanka. Thats why some countries now have changed their ditsribution of aid to these countries, and stopped aid to Sri Lanka.
    So Sri Lanka must get used to the fact that aid and investments to help the country's economy will largely diminish in the future. Happy begging days are gone, time to stand on own legs...

    It clearly shows that the China is indirectly telling SL to co-operate with the UN.
