President leaves for Seychelles
President Maithripala Sirisena has left for Seychelles this morning on a 3 days state visit.
He is accompanied by his wife and a high level delegation, according the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Seychelles.
President Sirisena is visiting Seychelles on an invitation extended to him by President Danny Faure in March last year, during President Faure’s working visit to Sri Lanka.
President Sirisena and President Faure are expected to have bilateral discussions on various areas of cooperation between the two countries.
The talks are expected to concentrate on health, education, tourism, environment, fisheries, maritime security and the Indian Ocean Commission amongst others, the statement said.
Today, marks exactly 30 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries and this visit is likely to pave the way to further cooperation between the two Indian Ocean neighbours.
Seychelles and the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka established diplomatic relations on 3rd October 1988.

This is the man who complain of former politicians travelling all over the world for the fun of it. How can you trust this man. Because this guy has nothing better to so he is having luxury holidays on tax payers expenses.
Also to be reelected he is bending to Tamils and Muslims votes respectively the damage he is doing to Sinhalese people. Hope the plane crash and see the end of this Gama Rala
The R family had strong links with the Seychelles in the sunset of their rule.
The Seychelles is good place for money laundering.
the good die youngand only the evil survive to wish that the plane carrying Sirisena serves no justice considering th those taking the same flight. The physical losses will be an added burden on the poor one way or another.
The trip itself is frivolous in that Seychelles can do little to the financial crisis that sirirsean is faced with for seyschelles itself is tottering on bankruptct and sirirsena ought to have been told that he is wasting his time!
