Millennium Challenge Agreement re-submitted to Cabinet Featured

Although the Millennium Challenge Agreement signed with America has received the Cabinet nod, it is most likely to be submitted to Cabinet tomorrow for re-consideration, according to government sources.

This agreement had not received the approval of the President, but, it was passed by the Cabinet last week.

While this agreement had come under criticism from various quarters, the President had notified the Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera not to sign it.

However, Cabinet is expected to re-evaluate its approval which was received last week.
