SL enjoys well-deserved respect in the world as democratic state: Russian FM spokeswoman     Follow

Modern Sri Lanka enjoys well-deserved respect in the world as a sovereign, democratic, and socially oriented state, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.

She expressed these views during her briefing in Moscow yesterday (28).

“Citizens of Sri Lanka are rightfully proud not only of their ancient history but also of their great achievements in the field of economic development,” she underlined.

“Russian-Sri Lankan bilateral ties have invariably remained constructive since they were established. We maintain political contacts, including at the highest and high levels, and cooperate productively on the international arena, at the UN and other multilateral platforms. Russia has traditionally been an important trading partner of Sri Lanka and one of the largest importers of Ceylon tea. The island’s sights and resorts traditionally attract a large number of Russian tourists. Naturally, the coronavirus pandemic has changed the situation,” she highlighted.

Finally, she wished all the very best to Sri Lankan friends on their most important public holiday, the Independence Day.
