Uprising in Ukrainian: Sri Lanka goes against history
The Sri Lankan government said that in keeping with country’s consistent policy of recognizing democratically elected Heads of State, the unconstitutional removal of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych from office is regretted, and has aggravated the present political uncertainty in Ukraine.
While acknowledging the justifiable concerns of the Russian Federation, Sri Lanka also welcomes attempts at de-escalating the tension, the External Affairs ministry said in a statement.  “Sri Lanka is confident that the parties concerned would be able to resolve the issues arising out of the recent developments, through a legitimate democratic process, enabling harmonious co-existence of the people of Ukraine,” it added.
