Our country is being dragged back to the 2010-2015 era, under the then President and now incumbent Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, when we were isolated from the world, claimed Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) Parliamentarian Harshana Rajakaruna. 

“We were isolated from the world. The European Union (EU) stopped providing the Generalised Scheme/System of Preferences Plus reliefs. We now see the country is once again in the same situation,” alleged Rajakaruna. 

“Recently, a Chinese delegation visited our country without even following any quarantine rule. There is information that the United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is looking forward to visiting our country. We don’t know whether these countries are visiting us to provide loans at high interest rates. We don’t know their intentions of visiting us,” he further claimed.

Rajakaruna expressed these views on 16 October at a media briefing held at the SJB headquarters.
