US will take over Sri Lanka warns Weerawamsa

Addressing an event in Marawila on Saturday, the infamous minister, Wimal Weerawansa, asserted that the US was seeking to "destablise" the country by working in "separatist organisations".

Weerawamsa said,

“The geographic location of Sri Lanka and its natural resources are vital for American interest and due to this factor, the Americans have sided with separatist organisations that want to de stabilize this country and then take it over."

It is because of this that the US, Britain and the TNA are asking for the removal of the military in the North."

"That would help them sow the seeds of separatism again in the North and de-stabilize the region and the country.”
