Joint opposition MP Wimal Weerawansa yesterday asked Foreign Affairs Minister Tilak Marapana whether the US has been allowed to set up a naval base in Trincomalee.  

The minister told Mr. Weerawansa to inquire about it from the Ministry of Defence because it was a matter that came under its purview. 

“I am not aware. It is not a matter that comes under my ministry,” Mr. Marapana said.
