Deputy Foreign Minister Dr. Harsha de Silva said Sri Lanka has already sketched a back-up plan to enter a separate trade agreement with Great Britain to reduce the unavoidable negative economic impact of Brexit on Sri Lanka.

Dr. De Silva made this remark commenting on a statement made by MP Dinesh Gunawardena in the Parliament today.

Britain voted to leave the European Union in a referendum, with the result throwing into question the fate of the 28-nation bloc and making their Prime Minister David Cameron quit his position soon after the momentous result.

The official results were announced with Leave receiving 51.9 percent in today’s historic referendum.

Sri Lanka was of the opinion that the United Kingdom should remain in the EU and, thereafter, it supported propaganda campaigns in London to make the opinion victorious in the referendum.
