Sri Lankans in Qatar have been advised on measures to be taken in case of an emergency arising from the tense geopolitical conditions in the region, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ravi Karunanayake informed Parliament yesterday.


Making a ministerial statement, Karunanayke said that although expatriates had been warned of possible emergency situations, there was no danger of Qatar facing such circumstances.
