China’s assistance never attached with political strings - Spokesperson

China’s assistance to Sri Lanka is never attached with any political strings, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian reiterated, emphasizing that China never seeks any selfish political gains in its investment and financing in Sri Lanka. The Spokesperson, responding to a question by a journalist at his Regular Press Conference on Monday,   said “China fully relates to the difficulties and challenges faced by Sri Lanka and supports relevant financial institutions in discussing with Sri Lanka and properly resolving them. We have all along provided support to Sri Lanka’s socioeconomic development as long as our ability permits.

“This year marks the 65th anniversary of China-Sri Lanka diplomatic relations, and the 70th anniversary of the Rubber-Rice Pact. It is of great significance to build on past achievements and work for fresh progress. China will work with Sri Lanka to carry forward the traditional friendship, cement strategic mutual trust, deepen and expand practical cooperation, and consolidate and expand China-Sri Lanka strategic cooperative partnership to better deliver benefits to the two countries and the two peoples,” the Spokesperson remarked.
