* Judge government by its actions not by statements - Foreign Minister
Wed, Oct 26, 2016, 12:00 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Oct 25, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Foreign Affairs Minister Mangala Samaraweera asked the critics to judge the current Unity government by its actions and not by the statements made by the leaders.

Foreign Minister Samaraweera made this comment when asked about the President Maithripala Sirisena's recent controversial comment at a press conference in Colombo.

In response to a journalist's question whether the government is still committed towards the good governance and accountability as there is a serious question about the credibility of the government after the President's recent statements, Minister Samaraweera said the government has not veered away from the original mandate.

"Please judge us by our actions, not by our statements... Whatever statements the President or anyone else say, we have not veered from our original mandate of creating a dynamic, vibrant democracy in Sri Lanka where all people can live in unity and harmony," he said.
