U.S Ambassador to Sri Lanka Julie Chung has reiterated the necessity to maintain peace during protests.
“Violence is not an answer. If you are going to protest, please do so peacefully,” the Ambassador tweeted.
She also requested military and police personnel to grant peaceful protesters the space and security to do so.
Ambassador Chung further stressed that chaos and force will not fix the economy nor would it bring the political stability that Sri Lankans need right now.
