* China hopes Sri Lanka can maintain stability
Thu, Nov 15, 2018, 08:03 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 15, Colombo: China has been closely following the developments of the situation in Sri Lanka as the South Asian country continues to experience political upheaval, following the defeat of the Prime Minister appointed by President Maithripala Sirisena in parliament yesterday.

"As a traditional friendly neighbor of Sri Lanka, China has been closely following the developments of the situation in Sri Lanka," China's Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying said in response to media queries, at the regular press conference on Wednesday.

China hopes the political parties have the "wits and ways" to resolve the crisis, the Spokesperson said.

"We hope that Sri Lanka can maintain stability. We hope and believe that all relevant parties in Sri Lanka have the wits and ways needed to deal with the current situation."

The country has been plunged into a political cataclysm by President Maithripala Sirisena when he ousted Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe last month and appointed former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to the post, appointed his own cabinet, prorogued the parliament and eventually dissolving the assembly and calling snap elections.
