US want SL to follow Constitution, refrain from violence

27 October 2018 01:55 am - 13     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The United States a short while ago called on all parties in Sri Lanka to act in accordance with the Constitution, refrain from violence and follow due process.

In a tweet, the Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs of the US Department of State said it was following the events in Sri Lanka.

“We expect the Government of Sri Lanka to uphold its Geneva commitments to human rights, reform, accountability, justice and reconciliation,’ it said.

The tweet followed the appointment of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka.

    This shows quite clearly that not only the citizens of Sri Lanka, but also the democratic world do not want to have a criminal as Prime Minister of Sri Lanka.

    I dont think the US has the moral right to tell us what to do. As far as we know the politicians of our country messed everything for us, and we have survived. Im sure we will go thru this as well.

    The US has imposed sanction again Iran has stated they will impose sanction on any country that's deal with Iran. This resulted in all other countries of the world seizing there ties with Iran (excluding China only). So yeah that's how powerful the US and that's how stupid the majority of comments are. Every ones wants to friends with the US.
