Health Minister Keheliya Rambukwella requested the Korean government co-operation with the anti-malnutrition drive to reduce starvation and malnutrition in Sri Lanka.
While addressing a gathering of Heads of Mission of MIKTA countries, at the Korean Ambassador’s Residence, he said the international co-operation and partnerships that Sri Lanka shares with its neighbors and friendly nations contributed to Sri Lanka’s success at controlling the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the competent leadership and the tireless sacrifice of the medical professionals have resulted in Sri Lanka successfully overcoming the COVID-19 pandemic. “We are still not out of the woods yet, all countries must unify to address the shortages of food that have threatened the world, including Sri Lanka,” he said.
The Minister thanked the Korean Ambassador, H.E. Santhush Woonjin Jeong, for his friendship and partnership, and the Sri Lankan government reiterated its commitment to working with any partner willing to lend a helping hand generously.
MIKTA was established in 2013 as a consultation and coordination mechanism among the foreign ministers of G20 members Mexico, Indonesia, the Republic of Korea, Türkiye and Australia. It aims to make constructive contributions to global peace and stability as well as further enhance cooperation among its members. (Chaturanga Pradeep Samarawickrama)
