US Ambassador to Sri Lanka Julie Chung met Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena and Air Force Commander Air Marshal Sudarshana Pathirana on Friday (27).
“Good discussion held with Speaker of Parliament Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena about the crucial role of the Legislature in a democracy. Efforts to stabilise and strengthen SL’s economy must be undertaken hand-in-hand with political reforms needed to address the urgent concerns of the people,” Ambassador Chung said.
“A strong, secure Sri Lanka is critical to the stability and prosperity of the Indo-Pacific. Productive meeting with Air Marshall Sudarshana Pathirana held about our efforts to strengthen defence cooperation in the region and our ongoing commitment to Sri Lankan security,” she added.
