Indian External Affairs Minister, Dr. S. Jaishankar called on President Gotabaya Rajapaksa on the second day of his visit to Sri Lanka. Subsequently, the External Affairs Minister met with Foreign Minister Dinesh Gunawardena prior to a joint press conference held this afternoon (06).

On an invitation extended by Minister Gunawardena, Dr. Jaishankar arrived in Sri Lanka yesterday and his stay is expected to continue until the 7th of January. During his visit, Dr. Jaishankar is expected to hold bilateral discussions with Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa as well.

While this official visit marks the first arrival of a high-level foreign dignitary in Sri Lanka in 2021, it has also become the earliest official visit outside India for External Affairs Minister Dr. Jaishankar in the New Year.
