Parliamentarian Dr. Harsha De Silva said Sri Lanka should pay a vast sum of US$1,000 million as debt for loans of International Sovereign Bonds by January next year.

He further said the interest from 5.2% to 9% will go up in this transaction with the agreement had in International Secondary Market.

Dr. De SIlva said this loan was taken during Mahinda Rajapaksa regime and it should be paid at once.

The government has no plans to repay this loan and Sri Lanka has to face severe problems internationally due to this situation. (Dayaseeli Liyanage)

    MR knew very well ahead about this financial strangulation. This is reason he called for the presidential election in 2015, cutting his own term by two years.

    May I suggest you let MR handle this and get into a septic tank. Then you have a better chance at the next election with of course a new charismatic leader. Monday, 19 November 2018 09:46 AM
