Former Maldivian President Mohamed Nasheed responded to a comment made by SJB MP Dr. Harsha De Silva involving his name, saying that it is false.
Denying the SJB MP’s claim, Nasheed said he believes that a number of countries are willing to help Sri Lanka, and that the assistance will come through.
“Harsha De Silva is a long-time friend and we often meet. I always enjoy his company. This press story isn’t accurate though. I believe a number of countries are willing to help Sri Lanka, and that the assistance will come through,” Nasheed wrote on Twitter.
The Opposition Economist recently told a gathering that he casually met the former Maldivian President, who revealed to him that he was given a ‘contract’ by the government to seek support for Sri Lanka and learned from the Leader Supreme of Saudi Arabia Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS) and the Leader of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) via private telephone conversations that they will ‘not’ assist Sri Lanka due to its failed plans.
