Sri Lanka is expected to sign a few MoUs with Pakistan on bilateral cooperation, during the visit of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on February 22, Foreign Minister Dinesh Gunawardane said yesterday.

The Minister told Daily Mirror that an existing MOU would also be renewed during the visit.

The visit takes place at a time when Sri Lanka is in a rigorous exercise of diplomatic operation to woo the support of member states of the UNHRC- that is to thwart any effort to move a resolution on Sri Lanka. Pakistan has been a supporter of Sri Lanka at the UNHRC right throughout. Pakistan is also an active member of the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC). (KELUM BANDARA)

    I do not believe Chinese ever will come to depend Sri lanka from any Indian invasion. Pakistani have more will power than a superpower. China is good economically and with some low profile military work. Surely they will depend their own country.

    Pakistan itself is running behind China with a begging bowl, how can they help Sri Lanka another with a begging bowl?

    However, Jews and wester countries established the best trick to hijack Sri lanka when ever they want. That is why they brought rajapkses into power. Now, when Rajapaksas' popularity gone down, all they have to do is bring war crime charges with UN crooks

    Yes, let’s get closer to Pakistan. A more honourable country. With a honourable PM. One cannot trust India! Who trained and armed the Tamil terrorists. INDIA. Now cajoling with US and the west just to protect its ‘backside’ and underhandedly workings against Sri Lanka. Let’s get out of India’s strangle hold. DO NOT TRUST INDIA.

    What is difference between Pakistan begging bowlers and Sri lanka begging bowlers? Pakistani begging bowlers in the military won't allow crooks

    One day Indian and Pakistani people will unite as they so much in common with each other. This will really anger the Sri Lankan smiling people and make them jealous.

    Pakistani Sunday, 14 February 2021 12:49 PM

    Please don't ask money from us in the MOU. We are worse beggars than you all.
