Play more prominent role as SAARC observer

SL tells China:

COLOMBO: President Mahinda Rajapaksa said he expected China to play a more important role as a observer of South Asian Association of Regional Cooperation (SAARC).

He made the remarks when meeting with Wu Dawei, Deputy Foreign Minister of China who was attending the 15th SAARC Summit here on Saturday.

Sri Lanka will stick to the “One China Policy” as always, Rajapaksa said.

As the most important regional entity in South Asia, SAARC has achieved a lot in promoting cooperation among its member countries and the socio-economic development in the region, Wu said.

He said that China expected SAARC could play a more significant role in maintaining the peace, stability and prosperity in South Asia and around the world.

“The Chinese Government would like to further its cooperation with SAARC in promoting peace, prosperity and harmony across Asia and the world,” Wu said.

Wu also thanked Sri Lanka for its support for China when its Sichuan Province was hit by an earthquake.

He welcomed President Rajapaksa to Beijing to watch the Olympic Games and offered his best wishes for Sri Lankan sportsmen going to compete in the Olympics. - Xinhua
