Sri Lanka stands by statement on Lanka-Mexico talks

Sri Lanka maintains that an assurance was given by Mexico last week that the island nation will not figure in the agenda of the UN Security Council and stood by a statement issued by the Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry on the talks between both countries.

“Mexican Vice Minister Gomez-Robledo categorically said Sri Lanka will not be on the UN Security Council agenda,” Foreign Secretary Dr. Palitha Kohona said when he was contacted by Daily Mirror to respond to some reports which said the Foreign Ministry statement was inaccurate.
