Swiss advise against trips to Sri Lanka; US urges smooth transfer of powers

The Swiss Government advised travellers to avoid unnecessary trips to Sri Lanka given the country’s political turmoil.

“Tourist and other non-urgent travel to Sri Lanka is discouraged (except for air transit via Colombo International Airport),” the Swiss Foreign Ministry posted on its website, noting the country’s declared State of Emergency.

“The political situation is confused and tensions have increased. A deterioration of the situation must be expected,” it added.

Meanwhile the United States Ambassador to Sri Lanka Julie Chung urged Sri Lanka’s political fraternity to ensure peaceful transfer of power and called for the rule of law to be upheld in the crisis-hit country.
