China which accounts for around 13% of Sri Lanka’s external debt has assured support to Sri Lanka following the latter’s announcement of repayment temporarily.  

According to AFP, the Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Zhao Lijian said Tuesday's default would not stop Beijing from lending support to Sri Lanka's beleaguered economy.

“China has always done its best in providing assistance to Sri Lanka's economic and social development. We will continue to do so in the future,” AFP quoted him as saying.
