President agrees to meet CBK

Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapaksa

President Mahinda Rajapaksa has agreed to meet with former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga (CBK), following a request made by Kumaratunga to discuss religious harmony in the country, a highly reliable source said.

The President has agreed to meet the former President only after she made a request for the second time.

Previously, Kumaratunga in a letter to Presidential Secretary Lalith Weeratunga, had requested for an appointment to meet the President to discuss religious harmony in the country. Speaking to the media, Kumaratunga said her letter had not received a positive response.

Kumaratunga had then sent a letter directly to the President, asking for an appointment.
