The final report of the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Agreement review committee would be presented to the Cabinet to be studied before making a decision on the agreement, Senior Advisor to the Prime Minister, Professor G.L.Peiris said.
Speaking at a news briefing held at the Sri Lanka Podujana Permanua (SLPP) headoffice, Professor Peiris said they believed that the report would be presented to the next Cabinet meeting.
“The Cabinet and the government should study the final report before making a decision on the MCC agreement. Anyone can access the final report now since it has been made public. The government hides nothing,” he said.
Professor Peiris said the government has to take into consideration all aspects prior to making a decision, as it cannot take spontaneous decisions.
Meanwhile, SLPP General Secretary Sagara Kariyawasam said a SLPP Government would never sign any agreement harmful to the country.
“It could be the MCC or any other, but we will never sign any agreement detrimental to the country,” he said.
