His Holiness Pope Francis called on President Maithripala Sirisena at the Presidential Secretariat last evening, where bilateral discussions were held between them with the sharing of good wishes.

Later, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe joined the discussion with Pope Francis and President Sirisena.

After this discussion, His Holiness and the President came to the hall which had a gathering of special invitees for the occasion, where the exchange of gifts between the Pope and the President took place.

President Sirisena gifted the Pope with a “Ran Kendiya” a gilded ornamental jug with handle and spout, richly engraved in traditional designs, typical of such vessels used in the royal courts of ancient Sri Lanka.

Pope Francis gifted President Maithripala Sirisena a copy of the Nautical Atlas attributed to Bartolome Oliva, drawn in 1562, which has 14 Nautical Maps in colour of Asia and Europe, including a very clear map of Sri Lanka at that time.
