The Indian embassy’s assertion came in the scenery of Chinese emissary Qi Zhenhong slamming nations “far or near” that “bullied” the island country while reaffirming its support for Sri Lanka on international platforms.
“China has always been supporting Sri Lanka in the international fora for protecting its sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity. We will continue to do that. In contrast, some countries, far or near, always make various groundless excuses to bully Sri Lanka and trample on Sri Lanka’s sovereignty and independence repeatedly,” the embassy said.
An article in such manner was distributed on the embassy’s website where it likewise pummeled US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s new visit to Taiwan, a free island country that China considers as its own.
