Sri Lanka could not receive GSP+ concession back before because the former government had no intention to agree for the terms of the European Commission, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa says.
He made the observation while speaking at the National Freedom Front convention which was held in Colombo on Sunday.
While clarifying that the country did not face any losses in the absence of GSP+, he went on to say plans are now underway to implement proposals which could harm the sovereignty of the country.
Rajapaksa also slammed the government over attempts to sell resources of the country and alleged move to draft a Federal Constitution. He also pointed out that immediate action should be taken to put a full stop to the policies of the new government.
