Commonwealth Secretary-General Kamalesh Sharma arrived in Sri Lanka today for a three day official visit during which he will meet the President Maithripala Sirisena, the Commonwealth’s new Chair-in-Office.

The Secretary-General will also meet Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera to discuss Commonwealth priorities as well as options for practical Commonwealth support for Sri Lanka’s national priorities.

The Secretary-General said he is looking forward to working with President Sirisena as Chair-in-Office in the run up to the Heads of Government meeting in Malta in November.

He said Sri Lanka is a founding member of the modern Commonwealth, and matters will be discussed how we can best support the country during this period of transition and in advancing national plans for the future.

Meanwhile, Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Nisha Biswal will travel to Colombo on February 2nd.

Joined by Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South Asia Atul Keshap, she will review bilateral and regional issues with the new Sri Lankan government, civil society and religious leaders, and other officials.

This will be the first visit to Sri Lanka by a senior State Department official since national elections were held earlier this month.
