The Sri Lankan government is yet to be informed about the cancellation of the Asian Athletic Games to be held at Chennai in July, an official of the Lankan Ministry of External Affairs told Express here on Friday.
Asked to comment on TN Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa’s bid to cancel the games on account of the participation of Lanka, the Director General of Public Communications, Rodney Perera, said that he could not comment because the Lankan government had not been informed about any move to change the venue.
Earlier, cabinet spokesman Keheliya Rambukwelle had said that despite the anti-Sri Lankan happenings in TN, the Lankan government would not interact with the TN government, but only with the Central government in New Delhi, because the latter was in-charge of foreign relations.
No Proof: Gotabaya
