Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says he has assured India that delayed Indo-Lanka projects will be expedited.
Wickremesinghe, in a statement today, said that a further series of joint initiatives between India and Sri Lanka is being planned to ensure continued economic cooperation.
The Prime Minister said that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s continual show of support towards Sri Lanka will serve to strengthen confidence and encourage more people to visit Sri Lanka.
“During his trip we discussed matters including the strengthening of regional security through reviving tri-lateral talks between Sri Lanka, India and the Maldive’s. I also requested that India work closely with Sri Lanka’s security forces, providing them with counter-terrorism training and logistical support,” Wickremesinghe said today.
He also said that Modi’s visit to Sri Lanka, following the lifting of the travel advisories by many countries including the UK, France and China, will serve as a boost for the tourism industry. (Colombo Gazette)
