Sri Lanka seeks emergency fuel shipment from India amidst crisis

The Indian High Commission in Colombo said New Delhi agreed to provide further fuel to resolve Sri Lanka’s fuel shortage.

The announcement came following a teleconference between India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Sri Lanka counterpart Maithripala Sirisena.

“In response to Sri Lanka’s request for emergency petrol shipments, PM assured that India will extend all possible assistance,” said the Indian High Commission.

Sri Lanka imports all of its fuel, mainly from the UAW, Malaysia and Singapore, reports Reuters.
