China has expressed confidence that concerted efforts of the Sri Lankan government and people will see Sri Lanka overcome its temporary difficulties as soon as possible, helped by assistance from China.

Spokesman for Chinese foreign ministry Wang Wenbin has made the remark to the media.

He assured that China will never interfere in Sri Lanka’s internal affairs and will always step forward and extend a helping hand during difficult times.

China firmly supports Sri Lanka in safeguarding national sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, he said.

China will make good use of the two flagship projects of Colombo Port City and Hambantota Port to help Sri Lanka realize its “Vistas of Prosperity and Splendour”, and better deliver benefit to the two countries and peoples, Wang said.

He dismissed claims that joint Chinese investments are expensive and not profitable.

Wang noted that China-Sri Lanka cooperation is mutually beneficial and has been warmly welcomed by all sectors in Sri Lanka.
