I had a very successful telephone conversation with UN Secretary General H.E. António Guterres last evening. I assured him that the appointment of the new Prime Minister has been done in keeping with the Constitution of Sri Lanka.

President @MaithripalaS statement insinuating UN Secretary General agreed that PM appointment was fine has been challenged by @UN SG @antonioguterres. Says he urged President to hold urgent parliamentary vote to resolve crisis legally. Why lie? @RW_UNP #CoupLK pic.twitter.com/n9x69KzvOv
