To avoid clash with India, Sri Lanka cancels Pak PM Imran Khan's speech

Feb 22, 2021 19:57 IST

In an effort to avoid any kind of confrontation with India, Sri Lanka has cancelled a scheduled speech of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in its Parliament.

According to a report published in the Colombo Gazette, the Lanka government cannot risk its relations with India when it is getting stuck in the Chinese debt-trap, especially when India is positioning itself as the saviour for the world, by distributing Covid-19 vaccines.

India has recently gifted 5 lakh doses of Covishield vaccines to Sri Lanka.

The report by journalist Dar Javed went on to say, looking at the past incidents, it is evident that "giving him (Imran Khan) a platform like Parliament to speak would be like to dice with death".
