“I feel that we should follow your footsteps to control this hazard.” Sri Lanka President praises Duterte’s drug war

  • Sri Lanka’s Head of State praised President Rodrigo Duterte’s way of dealing drug problems.
  • He said that the drug war is an example to the world.

Sri Lanka President Maithripala Sirisena heavily praised President Rodrigo Duterte‘s drug war, saying that it is an example to the whole world.

During a banquet in Malacañang, he said that he’s willing to follow the President’s way of dealing drug related problem in their country.

“Excellency, the war against crime and drugs carried out by you is an example to the whole world, and personally to me. Drug menace is rampant in my country and I feel that we should follow your footsteps to control this hazard.”

On the other hand, the drug war is not lauded by many as international media has expressed their opposition on its process as it is linked to numerous deaths and human rights violations all over the country.


Sirisena is on a five-day state visit. His schedule includes a visit to the Asian Developent Bank in Mandaluyong and at the International Rice Research Institute in Los Baños, Laguna.
