UNP distances itself from protest in front of Chinese embassy



The United National Party (UNP) has distanced itself from a protest held by Pradeshiya Sabha member Sashi Hettiarachchi, who recently held a protest in front of the Chinese Embassy in Colombo asking China to restructure Sri Lanka’s debt.

“UNP has nothing to do with this protest held by Pradeshiya Sabha member Shashi Hettiarachcih. Our party believes in diplomacy and the government is engaged in resolving debt matters with China through diplomatic ties,” UNP General Secretary Range Bandara said. 

“Debt restructuring is a matter concerned with the minister of finance and not an issue of the Pradeshiya Sabha member. The party will decide on how to deal with the Pradeshiya Sabha member shortly,” he added.
