Former Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara says that the arrival of the controversial Yuan Wang-5 Chinese hi-tech research ship in Sri Lanka is a sign of our country’s sovereignty.
“The arrival of the Yuan Wang-5 ship in Sri Lanka is a sign of freedom and sovereignty of the country. There was some controversy about the arrival of this ship. It is an imagination of western countries built around America. But we are working to maintain our long-term relations with China without succumbing to imperialist conspiracies.”
Vasudeva Nanayakkara said this when he went to Hambantota port yesterday (16) to receive the ship in question.
