President says he’s deeply concerned on violence in Brazil
President Ranil Wickremesinghe said he is deeply concerned about the recent tense situation that erupted in Brasilia.
In a statement, the President emphasised that Sri Lanka not long ago experienced similar attempts by groups to overthrow democratic structures through unconstitutional means.
“Such hostilities are condemned, and we stand in solidarity with the President, Government and people of Brazil in this hour of confrontation,” the President wrote.
He added that it is imperative that democracy and its institutions are universally respected by all citizens.
