Former Prime Minister and Chief Guest of WION Global Summit, Ranil Wickremesinghe, has said that this is an era which is witnessing the end of western dominance. 

According to WION News, Mr. Wickremesinghe in his keynote address in Dubai on Thursday has said this is an era which is witnessing the end of western dominance.

“An era is being shaped by new forces... the sudden rise of China in economic, military, political spheres challenging the unipolar world by attempting to remodel the existing global order.”

"The US is politically divided like never before. Even the European Union is divided and weaker,” he said.

"Coronavirus has brought China, the factory of the world, to a grinding halt. Its impact is also being felt in Sri Lanka. Maybe it's only China that can face trade war and coronavirus simultaneously,” he said.

WION Global Summit is a platform for global leaders to come together at a single platform and have a dialogue on a common global agenda.

In this year's edition, the list of speakers include former Sri Lankan Prime Minister, Ranil Wickremesinghe; Her Excellency Dr Vaira Vīķe-Freiberga, the first Female President of Latvia and former president of Club de Madrid, Aleqa Hammond; The first female Prime Minister of Greenland and Her Excellency Mariya Didi; the Honourable Minister of Defence of the Republic of Maldives.

    He is wrong all the black brown and yellow races and Muslims including barbaric primitive Sri Lankan’s want to live in the civilised prosperous west and white mans countries. A few weeks ago the Australians turned back a boat with some barbaric Chinese the genocide assisting friends of barbaric primitive Buddhist Sri Lankan’s. The entire civilised Christian European white world can unite and screw any country like they are screwing iran and also screw Sri Lanka’s barbaric friends like the chinese

    You have realized it only now when MR had realized it in 2020, and embraced China. You embraced the West in 2015, and ridiculed MR's China policy. If you hadn't fooled the people MR might have been re-elected in 2015, and our country would have been many thousand miles ahead where development is concerned, than where we stand today.
