Jayasuriya hailed India for being “very helpful from the start of crisis” and for giving aid to Sri Lanka. “India is playing a big role for Sri Lanka,” he added.

“After peaceful transition of president and prime minister, when politicians start a stable government, IMF, India and all friendly countries will start coming out and help Sri Lanka. India has been very helpful since the start of this crisis and India (has) given lot of aid to Sri Lanka. So we are thankful for that. India is playing a big role for Sri Lanka,” Jayasuriya told news agency ANI.
