Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is ‘very interested’ in Sri Lanka and the region, and that this augurs well for Sri Lanka which is in the threshold of a new era.

Prime Minister Wickremesinghe was speaking at the Indian High Commission reception to mark the 66th Indian Republic Day.

Prime Minister said Sri Lanka wants to go beyond strengthening traditional ties to strengthening economic ties to enter the modern age.

He further said that the newly elected President Maithripala Sirisena and the masses who voted him to power share this perspective.

Wickremesinghe appealed to Lankan businessmen to link up with India to explore new opportunities thrown up by a resurgent neighbor.

The Prime Minister broke diplomatic tradition by agreeing to be the chief guest at India's National Day when normally the chief guests are ministers.

Twenty six ministers, the leader of the opposition, Nimal Sripalade Siva, former President Chandrika Kumaratunge, top representatives of Indian and Sri Lankan companies, and foreign envoys were present.
