Colombo, August 4
Sri Lanka is firmly committed to the ‘one-China’ policy, President Ranil Wickremesinghe reaffirmed on Thursday, a day after US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan despite vociferous protests from Beijing.
“During a meeting with HE Qi Zhenhong, China’s Ambassador to Sri Lanka, reiterated Sri Lanka’s firm commitment to the ‘one-China’ policy as well as to the UN charter principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity of nations,” the president of the crisis-hit country said in a tweet on Thursday. Countries must refrain from provocations which further escalate the current global tensions, Wickremesinghe said.
