China to support Sri Lanka at Geneva vote

Colombo, 19 March, (

China will support Sri Lanka at the crucial vote on the resolution to be moved by the United States against Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva at the end of this month, Chinese Deputy Ambassador in Colombo Ren Faqiang said.

China considers that winning peace after ending the war is the largest and major contributor to the promotion of Human Rights in Sri Lanka, he said.

According to a report by Daily News, Faqiang stressed that China as a close friend is ready to stand by Sri Lanka to overcome its challenges in the field of economic development, reconstruction and Human Rights issues too. He added that any attempt to intimidate and push Sri Lanka by using Human Rights as a tool is unacceptable under any circumstance.

Faqiang said Sri Lanka has made tremendous progress in the field of construction, social progress and above all religious harmony during the past four years.

The Deputy Ambassador was speaking at a ceremony at Mulativana to mark the opening of Mulatiyana - Kotapola road funded by China Development Bank.

The project costs Rs. 36 billion. Two leading companies from China and Sri Lanka handled the construction.
