Lanka committed to ‘one-China’ policy: Prez Ranil says after Pelosi’s Taiwan visit

Friday, 05 August 2022 | PTI | Colombo

Sri Lanka is firmly committed to the one-China policy, President Ranil Wickremesinghe reaffirmed on Thursday, a day after US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan despite vociferous protests from Beijing. Pelosi held talks with Taiwan's top leadership, including President Tsai Ing-wen, on Wednesday and reaffirmed America's ironclad support for the self-ruling island.

Pelosi became the highest-ranking American official in 25 years to visit the island claimed by China, which quickly announced that it would conduct military drills close to Taiwan in retaliation for her presence in Taipei.

"During a meeting with H.E. Qi Zhenhong, China's Ambassador to Sri Lanka, reiterated Sri Lanka's firm commitment to the One China policy as well as to the UN charter principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity of nations," the president of the crisis-hit country said in a tweet on Thursday.
