Sri Lanka is to seek assistance and support from China to operate the country's main power plant, a deputy minister said here on Wednesday.

Deputy Minister of Power and Energy Ajith Perera told Xinhua that the government would soon discuss the matter with China.

Sri Lankan's power sector has been facing a crisis in recent months with three nationwide power failures reported since September last year.

The latest country-wide breakdown was reported on March 13, with power cut off for more than seven hours, the longest in 20 years.
