The Government today said that salt production in the country has not been affected.

Hence there is no shortage, a co-spokesman for the Cabinet said.

He refuted claims that salt production is hit, as a result of the burning ship debris, spreading to the areas where the salterns are.

The fire on the ship MV X-Press Pearl has had a substantial environmental impact on the coastline from Negombo to Moratuwa.
