Ali Sabry comes forward for Nandalal

Minister of Foreign Affairs Ali Sabry says that the decision to suspend the payment of interest and installments for loans taken from foreign countries was made after a long investigation with the intervention of the officials of the Central Bank, the officials of the Ministry of Finance, the heads of the government and all the responsible people.

The Minister points out that the decision was only announced to the country by the Governor of the Central Bank, and therefore it is absolutely unacceptable to accuse the Governor of the Central Bank Ajith Nandalal regarding the suspension of loan payments.

Ali Sabry said this while joining the budget debate, clarifying the comments made by the members of the opposition parties during the budget debate yesterday regarding the Governor of the Central Bank.

Sabry states that if any party wants to remove Nandalal Weerasinghe from the post of Central Bank governor, he is ready to resign instead, and that it is a big crime to lose a resource like Weerasinghe at a time when the country is facing a crisis.

The Minister says that as the decisions taken by him as the Governor of the Central Bank have benefited the people who are living their lives amid many challenges, the Minister says that he requests everyone to refrain from jumping behind the officials who take such bold decisions.

Nandalal Weerasinghe had recommended Sabry’s name for the Ministry of Finance even after Ranil Wickramasinghe became President.
