Sri Lanka Voices Continuous Support For China’s Sovereignty Over Hong Kong

COLOMBO, June 2 (NNN-SLNEWS) – Sri Lankan Foreign Minister, Dinesh Gunawardena, on Monday, voiced his country’s continuous support to China’s sovereignty over its Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).

“Sri Lanka expressed continuity of its support on sovereignty of China (over) its territory and national security in relation to Hong Kong,” Gunawardena wrote, on his Twitter account.

“All Sri Lankans will continue to enjoy usual work and business in Hong Kong,” Gunawardena added.
