COLOMBO (News 1st); The Ambassadors of Switzerland and Norway have also issued statements regarding the Government imposing the State of Emergency in Sri Lanka. 

Swiss Ambassador to Sri Lanka and the Maldives, Dominik Furgler says it is hard to see how a State of Emergency could help in any way.

The Swiss Ambassador stated that for weeks the Sri Lankans have been peacefully demonstrating because they are desperate and suffering, and to avoid an escalation the causes have to be seriously and credibly addressed now.

Norwegian Ambassador to Sri Lanka and the Maldives, Trine Eskedal says the declaration of State of Emergency is concerning.

In a tweet, the Norwegian Ambassador pointed out that using teargas on peaceful protesters and declaring a state of emergency when the protests have been peaceful and while the parliament is adjourned is concerning.
