Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has said that he has asked the President of Russia for help in importing oil to his country which is in economic crisis.

Rajapakse described the talks with the Russian President as very positive.

Talks between the presidents of Sri Lanka and Russia took place after Sri Lanka’s energy minister warned last weekend that his country would run out of petrol very soon.

On Wednesday, large numbers of people in Sri Lanka took to the streets in the capital, Colombo, to protest against the government. He demonstrated near parliament and called it a “final push” to topple the Rajapaksa government.
