All parties and competent authorities in Sri Lanka should respect the Constitution and follow due political process, British State Minister for Asia and Pacific Mark Field said.

He said the UK was following the latest developments in Sri Lanka closely and with concern.

Meanwhile, the Government of UK updated its travel advisory on Sri Lanka yesterday.

It said there are reports of rapid political developments in Sri Lanka.

“You should exercise vigilance and avoid all demonstrations or large political gatherings. We will continue to monitor and update Travel Advice as appropriate,” the UK Foreign Office advised British citizens.

    MLT if you think this is mudslinging you are wrong. There is no mud to sling at .... all the mud is used up by your relatives and friends from the JOker party.

    MLT you should go and tell this to your appachchi for promoting thuggery among youths and paying them. To be frank UNP government couldn't even provide job opportunities as all the ministries are filled with your appachis henchmen.

    Come out of the well. Let things happen according to the constitution.

    Jaliya Saturday, 27 October 2018 10:12 AM

    Ranjan, You are right .. telling nicely to a group of morons will never work. They require boot in the ass and a rifle butt in the mouth by a foreign soldier.

    International community must intervene if our leaders are acting in an undemocratic manner like this,,,Sirisena,,biggest fool,,where is his basic promise that he will only go for a second term,,clinging on to power ...wants to go for another term and undermining a democratically elected Govt who has a majority before its term of 5 years ends,,,Sirisena should be sent home immediately for going against majority wish of people,,

    Already the credit outlook has been revised to negative. No need for UK/US to give opinions. God save Sri Lanka

    Lokka Saturday, 27 October 2018 09:13 AM

    US and UK the first countries to interfere again in Sri Lankan matters. These Western powers are partly responsible for the unpopularity of the Ranil government and its downfall.

    Eran Saturday, 27 October 2018 09:18 AM

    Come on UK. Wake up...colonisation is over. This is a free world. We will decide our fate. Your leaders have direly failed the lackluster public in Britain on the concensus in Brexit . It's time you mind your own business

    Harini Saturday, 27 October 2018 10:07 AM

    That is for damn sure.

    Flash Saturday, 27 October 2018 10:46 AM

    Wewala Saturday, 27 October 2018 10:55 AM

    Do not interfere with our soverinty it’s a very internal matter to save the country.Look after Brexit.

    Ami Saturday, 27 October 2018 01:39 PM

    End of the day if there will be sanctions from UK,EU and USA there will be no future for Sri Lankan exporters. That will be the end of it...Remember China won’t buy our stuff , what we offer they have it at a cheeper cost....
