Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi will visit Sri Lanka next month making it the third senior official level visit from China in recent months, Daily Mirror learns.

Chinese Defence Minister Wei Fenghe arrived in the country last week and held talks with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa. The two countries agreed to enhance defence cooperation.

Last year, Yang Jiechi, Member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and Director of the Office of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the CPC Central Committee was also in Colombo for bilateral discussions. He is also the chief of foreign affairs of China.

Foreign Minister Wang will arrive in the country as part of his visit to the region. Last week, he also addressed a virtual meeting with his counterparts of Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Afghanistan. He discussed, among others, cooperation on the containment of COVID-19 and poverty alleviation.

Sri Lankan government is planning to enact the Port City Economic Commission Bill on Monday to regulate the affairs of the Port City which is US $1.4 billion investment by China. (Kelum Bandara)

    Yes, they are all flocking to their new found territory . The Nandasena strings are pulled from China and the rest in Sri Lanka are supporting puppets.

    Welcome to Sri Lanka Mr. Wang Yi. Thanks for visiting us and may I ask you politely, who is the next Chinese official on the travel list coming here?

    Shane Monday, 03 May 2021 07:20 AM

    There will be breaking news soon as China appoints their new Governor General in Srilanka. Then Nandasena will escape from the back door to his uncle Sams house.

    Haven't the Chinese done enough damage to the entire world?

    These Chinese visits reminds me of the official Havana Mafia conference in 1946 at the invitation of the US Mafia boss of all bosses Meyer-Lansky, which the Cuban dictator Batista also attended. At this conference, Cuba, and especially Havana, was divided among the American Mafia families.

    Try buying any stuff, the only option given is Chinese made stuff. I tried to buying a pesticide sprayer and only sprayers available in Srilankan market are Chinese made ones. They are giving us cents and taking rupees from us and our land.

    India please note.....

    Badeesaeed Monday, 03 May 2021 08:37 AM

    The only sinhalese speaking country is also going to be a Chinese speaking and by another 50 years time no more sinhalese in the world. We really feel hurt over this.

    Don't sound your horns!

    Leel Monday, 03 May 2021 10:16 AM

    West, America, Japan and especially India may be looking (at us) helplesslly.

    Ronnie Bugger Monday, 03 May 2021 01:31 PM

    Another road block, Good.

    Sambo Monday, 03 May 2021 02:29 PM

    He will be taking command from our already aged FM.
