Minister of Foreign Affairs Tilak Marapana is scheduled to visit India next week.

He will be accompanied by Foreign Secretary Prasad Kariyawasam, who was Sri Lankan High Commissioner to India before being appointed as the ambassador to the United States.

This also happens to be his first overseas visit since assuming office on the 15th of August.

Marapana is scheduled to call on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, hold talks with his Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj, and a few other ministers and officials.

Sushma Swaraj was in Colombo last week to attend the second Indian Ocean Conference.

She met President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and Tilak Marapana and discussed key aspects of bilateral cooperation.

Sri Lanka released 76 Indian fishermen to coincide with Swaraj’s visit to the country.
