GSP + dialogue continues
Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama has said greater understanding
of the respective positions and the need to continue to engage in a
dialogue was achieved, through his interactions in Brussels aimed at
supporting Sri Lanka's continued retention of the GSP+ facility with the
relevant European Commissioners.
He said while Sri Lanka would not agree to subject itself to any
intrusion of its sovereignty, it was ready for continued engagement and
dialogue on any concerns the EU might have regards Sri Lanka benefitting
from this facility.
The Foreign Minister made these observations during a question and
answer session that followed an address to members of the European
Parliament, hosted by the 'Friends of Sri Lanka' Group.
