Ranil Wickremesinghe comments on possible re-opening of country
Former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says the re-opening of the country could be delayed till mid-October.
Speaking during a panel discussion organised by the International Chamber of Commerce Sri Lanka, former Premier Ranil Wickremesinghe raised concerns that the lockdown will not be lifted on the 1st of October due to reports that there was a delay in purchasing diesel supplies for the domestic market.
Meanwhile, in response to the issue of debt management in Sri Lanka, United National Party Leader Wickremesinghe said the most pressing concern is addressing the dwindling foreign exchange reserves in the country.
The former Prime Minister noted that the regional foreign exchange reserves are projected to increase over the course of the year, however, Sri Lanka’s foreign exchange reserves are on a downward trend.

The Dinosaurs are still active.
Thank you for your wisdom, Sir, though hardly anyone listens to you.
There will be food riots soon where the population will raid warehouses and supermarkets, break open doors and steal food to feed the family.
Of course, the Generals will deploy AK47 yielding soldiers to control the riots but most will risk their lives to put food on the table.
This shameless old senile never give up. Babbling babbling. I don’t think he knows what he is talking about.
This senile A-hole is very likely suffering from dementia. No longer in the real world. Or, wants to pull the whole nation and the country down in the belief when the country become ungovernable, his US, UK and EU friends will come and install him as the puppet president, This is a ‘desha-drohia. Where was this wisdom when the mad dogs were going on protest marches spreading the disease?
He thinks the parliament is a joke and he is a clown and can get away with everything by cracking dry jokes.
Offering of jasmine flowers (that what he was doing for the last 5 years) could not a single seat in his party. How a former (puppet) prim minister face the parliament as a ordinary member is beyond me.
