Sri Lanka PM hopes to strengthen relations with the US after Trump win
ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said he expected to strengthen already close relations with the US after Donald Trump won presidential polls.
The people in the US sought a revolutionary change, Wickremesinghe said, congratulating Trump.
Wickremesinghe said Trump defeated seasoned politicians in the Republican party and won amid great obstacles.
