Sri Lanka’s president arrives in Seychelles on first state visit of President Faure’s term

Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena arrived in Seychelles on Monday on a three-day official visit following an invitation from President Danny Faure during his visit to Sri Lanka last year.

Sirisena is the second Sri Lankan President to visit the island nation in the western Indian Ocean in the last five years. The President’s visit coincides with the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Sri Lanka and Seychelles.

During his three-day visit, Sirisena will meet with Faure at State House and hold bilateral meetings.

On his programme for Monday is also a visit to the Seychelles Hospital and the opening of the branch of Lanka Hospitals Corporation in the island nation.
