Govt will reject the MCC agreement in toto … Amaraweera


Power, Energy and Transport Minister Mahinda Amaraweera has observed that the government of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa would reject the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) compact ‘in toto’ and would never sign it as long as this government remained in power.

Minister Amaraweera was speaking to the media after his meeting with the US envoy in Colombo, Ms. Alaina B. Teplitz.

He stated that both President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa had given a firm pledge that Sri Lanka would not sign the MCC agreement at any time, under the current government. The MCC agreement was signed by the yahapalana government during the presidential election last year. Now they are putting the blame on us on an alleged attempt to sign the MCC by the government which would never happen.

He went on that the committee led by Prof. Lalithasiri Gunaruwan to review the MCC agreement, had clearly pointed out that the MCC agreement did more harm than being beneficial, and contravened the Constitution and national integrity and independence.
