There are never any political strings attached to China's assistance to Sri Lanka, and China never seeks any political interest through its financing for or investment in Sri Lanka, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said in Beijing on Thursday.

Geng Shuang made the remarks at a regular news conference after CNBC reported that Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said in Hanoi, Vietnam, on Tuesday he didn't believe Sri Lanka was falling into a debt trap due to Chinese loans.

"There are a fair amount of Chinese investments. There are China loans. I can't see it as a threat," the prime minister was quoted as saying.
