China offers support to Sri Lanka against foreign interference

The Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has offered his country’s support to Sri Lanka against pressure at the forthcoming UN Human Rights Council session in Geneva, during a visit by its External Affairs Minister GL Peiris.

"China opposes some countries' interference in the internal affairs of Sri Lanka under the pretext of human rights issues," Wang said in Beijing, according to Reuters.

"We believe in the Sri Lankan people's wisdom and capacity to handle their own affairs," he said, adding that China backs Sri Lanka in safeguarding national independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity.


We need your support

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
