Sri Lanka busts Pakistan’s lies, says never mentioned Kashmir in their meeting with Pakistan envoy

Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena has clarified that Pakistan's claims are false and he has not made any statements regarding offer to mediate between India and Pakistan or regarding Kashmir.

Pakistan seems hell-bent on being exposed and humiliated worldwide. Being compulsive liars, they have been exposed time and again internationally. Yesterday, Sri Lanka has exposed Pakistan’s lies where Pakistan had claimed that the Sri Lankan president has offered to mediate between India and Pakistan.

Pakistan’s High Commissioner in Sri Lanka Shahid Ahmad Hashmat had recently requested the Sri Lankan president for a meeting. After the meeting on 20th August, the statement by the Pakistani high commissioner has claimed that the Sri Lankan president had acknowledged that Kashmir is a ‘disputed territory’ and the dispute should be resolved according to the wishes of the Kashmiri people under the UN resolutions.

He had also claimed that President Sirisena has offered to mediate between India and Pakistan.

After the office of the Pakistan High Commissioner in Sri Lanka issued this statement, the office of Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena has denied giving any such statement.

In a press release, the Sri Lankan president has clarified that though the Pakistani envoy had briefed the Sri Lankan President about India’s recent decision to abrogate Article 370 and section 35A regarding Jammu and Kashmir, Sri Lanka has made no such statement as Pakistan claims.

President Sirisena’s office has stated, “The President gave a careful hearing to the Pakistan High Commissioner’s views and stated that both India and Pakistan have excellent friendly relations with Sri Lanka and Sri Lanka’s interest is to see the growth of regional cooperation and friendship. The President did not make any other comment on the issues pertaining to India and Pakistan,”

It is notable here that Sri Lanka was one of the first countries to acknowledge that India’s decision regarding Article 370 and Jammu and Kashmir bifurcation are its internal matters. In a statement after the decision, Sri Lankan PM Ranil Wickremesinghe had asserted that it is India’s internal issue and he had also expressed pleasure at the Buddhist majority Ladakh being a separate Union Territory finally.


Pakistan has been trying desperately for international intervention over the Kashmir issue. However, all its efforts and juvenile rants seem to be in vain as the country keeps losing all credibility with one international embarrassment after another.
