We have enough problems in our plate to sort out. Lets keep away from escalating global tensions between China, Taiwan and US.
Lumbini Thursday, 04 August 2022 12:10 PM
So, now you are playing the Chinese card. What a change!
Seb Thursday, 04 August 2022 12:23 PM
Very true. One could go as far as to say that it has been a history of the USA interfering with other countries.
BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 04 August 2022 12:34 PM
If India also behaves like China, then they should be having live firing exercises around 12mile coast of Sri Lanka for allowing the Chinese War ship entry into H’tota. China is having live ammunition drills around the full coast of Taiwan for allowing US Senator Pellosi visit.

Non interference of internal affairs is accepted ,as long as the government is acting democratically ,but once a government is suppressing the fundamental rights of the people international community has every right to come to the assistance of such people.
Ram Thursday, 04 August 2022 12:51 PM
Will the other countries listen to Our President. I doubt
Din Thursday, 04 August 2022 01:11 PM
He’s talking about not provoking and mutual respect. OMG the level of hypocrisy is unbelievable. think these people are devoid of any conscience
MirakRajBanda Thursday, 04 August 2022 01:15 PM
Well said Mr. Wickramasinghe. Let China stay away from Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Taiwan, Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam, South Korea, Thailand, Kenya, Madagascar, Uganda, Mozambique, Peru, Chilie, Argentina and (add any if I missed). UN Charter Principle of Sovereignity blatantly abused by the China by means of use of force, debt traps and intimidation.
TJ Thursday, 04 August 2022 01:24 PM
Taiwan is a democratic country whereas PRC is an authoritarian state. Srilanka adopting a one China policy is nothing but a hypocritical humbug
European Thursday, 04 August 2022 01:56 PM
Please tell your friend Russia too!
GlobeMaster Thursday, 04 August 2022 02:25 PM
Very sensible statement.
SajFar Thursday, 04 August 2022 02:25 PM
Thats one way to say no to any future US help
Mizaru Thursday, 04 August 2022 02:30 PM
Uncle Bean, how did you respond to the Russian invasion of Ukraine?
citizen Thursday, 04 August 2022 02:31 PM
just rying to butter china gong pattaya
George Jayatilleka Thursday, 04 August 2022 02:38 PM
First you should refrain from provocation against the Peace full Aragalaya protesters. This idiot guy is directing his comments to USA about 2 China policy. This guy does not understand USA can make or break Sri Lanka
Mursheed Idruus Thursday, 04 August 2022 02:46 PM
Well said it applies to internal affairs inalienably Where the due majority had to respect the due minorities duly unconditionally

Get the IMF loan and disappear after next elections.

Dude doesn’t have legitimacy in his own country. But preaches to the world!
A great LEADER. Thursday, 04 August 2022 03:08 PM
A very good advice from our President selected by the Rajapakshas. Sir first of all see that you don’t create any internal violence in the country.
Raj Thursday, 04 August 2022 03:15 PM
A population of 24Mn almost equal to the size of Sri Lanka in Taiwan wants to live as a Sovereign country! How about them?
Kosappu Thursday, 04 August 2022 03:37 PM
Just fix the problem you have rather than sorting out world issues
vithura Thursday, 04 August 2022 03:41 PM
We should all support the ‘One’ China with boundaries as existed after the end of 1949 civil war.
Peace Thursday, 04 August 2022 03:42 PM
It seems even as a leader of a bankrupt country, Ranil has the courage to take a better stand for world peace. Take note EU.
Jeerathie Palabedda Thursday, 04 August 2022 04:51 PM
No one will listen to you Ponna Prez! You not the people choice – chosen by 134 crooks!! Then why should they listen and donate a country with thieves as ministers. Only 134 considered you as the prez – 95% of people refuses to accept.
Europäische Thursday, 04 August 2022 05:17 PM
Mr President of Sri Lanka, Ukraine is also a sovereign state and would be attacked more brutally by Russia. Please also send me words to Putin so that he disappears from Ukraine again
Roshan Thursday, 04 August 2022 06:20 PM
Did the US refuse aid now that you want to sleep with China
Justice Thursday, 04 August 2022 06:56 PM
If there is genocide carried out, then the countries in the world can look into it. It’s not provocation. I entirely agree with Buffalo citizen and with Lion.
Jehan Thursday, 04 August 2022 07:03 PM
Lol. He is hunting innocent protestors and talking nonsense. Another joker like Gotha
sanath Thursday, 04 August 2022 07:18 PM
Now the whole world is waiting for his “tweets” to conduct their affairs!
Daya Thursday, 04 August 2022 07:23 PM
Aince U don’t have vote toco e to parliament, how come u become president of the country? Shame , will catch you one day !
Senarath Kobbakaduwa Thursday, 04 August 2022 08:26 PM
Batalandhe Wickramasinhe is a shameless leader and an opportunist who snuck into the SL Parliment after he was rejected by the people during the most recent general elections. There are so many politicians who can lead this country during an interim period. He supportted the Aragalaya until he outfoxed everyone – then he started talking nonsense about defending the constitution. He is nothing but a greedy conman. Sri Lanka deserves better!
Expert on Chi Lanka Thursday, 04 August 2022 08:27 PM
It’s worth stopping the Chinese ship sailing on to the Hambantota port first before getting involved in international matters
Nadi Karunaratne Thursday, 04 August 2022 08:37 PM
Trying to impress autocratic friends. A country on it’s knees is no position to dispense advice to anyone, not least when coming from this accidental President.
