Western Provincial Councillor Udaya Gammanpila responded to the statement made by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe over the Maldives.
The response was made at a press conference on Wednesday evening.
The Provincial Councilor expressed the following,
“… It is said that the Maldives is an extension of Sri Lanka. At every international issue, the Maldives renders its support to us, unconditionally. There are countries which render conditional support. This view may have been expressed citing the size of that country and since their population is small. If Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi also assumes that the Maldives is a part of Sri Lanka, as mentioned by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe , if this is asked as a Grade 5 Scholarship question, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi too will assume that Sri Lanka is a part of India. Do not let this thought become a reality. Dear Prime Minister, we are facing a number of issues internationally. Please do not create more issues.”
