Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa with a few other members of the joint opposition will undertake a week's official tour of China tomorrow.

He will be accompanied by former external affairs minister G.L. Peiris, MP Lohan Ratwatte and former MP Udith Lokubandara.

    Chinese trick to get more concessions in their new dealings from present govt - play left then right and get your money in between.

    alil Tuesday, 22 November 2016 11:00 AM

    Plz ask China to keep him forever and waive off the debts.

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 22 November 2016 10:57 AM

    China is too clever to allow that and be caught with Ali Baba. Ali Baba in turn also knows where he can hide his money from detection.

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 22 November 2016 10:56 AM

    China has close relationships with banana republics and rulers who govern with sheer arrogance.

    TJ Tuesday, 22 November 2016 10:28 AM

    Why can't the government appoint him as the Srilankan ambassador to China?

    chiristopher Tuesday, 22 November 2016 09:50 AM

    Why is Government spending for his entourage ? Let him undertake private tour but not at our expenses even after his office?

    Hesh Tuesday, 22 November 2016 09:50 AM
