Sri Lanka’s newly sworn-in President Gotabaya Rajapakasa has said that he will follow a neutral foreign policy and stay out of any conflict with world powers. Mr. Gotabaya was sworn in as seventh President of Sri Lanka at a ceremony in Anuradhapura on Monday morning.

He also promised a technocratic and meritocratic system with no place for corruption. The new President added that the government should always set an example for society saying professionalism and efficiency should be the cornerstone of government administration.
