Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe will make a special statement in Parliament today where he will clarify the outcome of the discussions held with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), a senior Minister told Parliament yesterday.

Minister Bandula Gunawardena revealed this in response to a query made by Chief Opposition Whip Lakshman Kiriella who questioned whether the negotiations with the IMF had failed.

“Foreign media practically in USA had reported that the negotiations with the IMF had failed. We would like to know the real situation. We actually expected a statement from the government with regard to negotiations today. However such a thing did not happen,” Mr Kiriella said.

“We hope that the negotiations with the IMF will be a success as the people of this nation should be relieved of their suffering,” Mr. Kiriella added. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

    The man Ranil who said he can bring Arjuna Mahendaran back anytime and he will accept RESPONSIBILITY for him. This man should not be trusted. SNAKE OIL SALESMAN.

    This F Ranil, better go home with the Rajapakses. From the time he took over as PM all he has been issuing is Special Statements. An unending string of special statements to cover his incompetence.

    Charles Jansz Tuesday, 05 July 2022 06:10 AM

    These frequent special Statements of RW have meant nothing and mean nothing it is all talk and no action like always!

    Mizaru Tuesday, 05 July 2022 06:16 AM

    Of all people, Kiriella. He is now too old like Ranil and talks nonsense. It is time he quit politics.

    Rodrigo Tuesday, 05 July 2022 06:23 AM

    Sorry sir, we don’t want statements but action. Many statements are made in parliament without any action for the dismay of general public.

    IMF has laid down three conditions before any financial assistance is considered.

    ANTON Tuesday, 05 July 2022 06:37 AM

    WILL THAT ALSO BE PUT OFF BY TWO MORE WEAKS ?

    Waiting for relief Tuesday, 05 July 2022 07:03 AM

    We studied that the world will give you reproach but not relief. Is Ranil an exception? He is just a carrier of bad news. He will give running commentary.

    The people don't want to know the outcome of discussions he had with the IMF but need solutions right now. We also know what the IMF said. Put your house in order and stop corruption if they are to help.

    All his statements in Parliament these days are special in keeping with the Pohottuwa tradition!!!
