China has rejected claims that Chinese-made railway carriages pose a threat to passengers in Sri Lanka.

In an email to Colombo Gazette, the China National Machinery Import and Export Corporation (CMC) said that the carriages given to Sri Lanka have been successfully operating for over 12 years.

CMC said that it is willing to offer their services in upgrading the carriages and even entering into a maintenance contract.

Engine drivers had last week decided to boycott operating trains with railway carriages made in China.
