Time is not right for former President to return home – President

President Ranil Wickremesinghe says it is not the right time for former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to return to the country as it could inflame political tensions, the Wall Street Journal reported.

“I don’t believe it’s the time for him to return,” Wickremesinghe said in an interview with the Journal. “I have no indication of him returning soon.”
Wickremesinghe has remained in contact with Rajapaksa to deal with administrative handover issues and other government business, the Journal said.
