Sun, Jun 28, 2020, 10:19 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 28, Colombo: The leader of the United National Party (UNP) former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says the government should make a clear statement on whether or not the government approves the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) agreement with the United States.

The UNP leader said the government should reveal to the public what it has told the U.S. and announce its stance to the public on signing the MCC Agreement.

Speaking to the media after attending religious observances at the Sedawatta Weheragoda Purana Viharaya, the former Premier said the government should refrain from deceiving the public to consolidate its power.

He noted that the U.S. Embassy had already disputed the claims made by the report of the Review Committee confirming that it has not transferred any funds to the Sri Lankan government and added that in his opinion the review committee report is useless and has not included anything substantial.
