President Maithripala Sirisena has left the island this morning to China to attend the Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilizations in Beijing.

The Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilizations will be held from May 15th to 22nd in Beijing, and Chinese President Xi Jinping will attend the event and deliver a keynote speech.

More than 2,000 government officials and representatives of various circles from 47 Asian countries and other countries outside the region will attend the opening ceremony and forums.

A joint meeting of the Cabinet and the Security Council was held under the patronage of President Maithripala Sirisena.

Although the Cabinet meeting is generally held on Tuesdays, this joint meeting was held yesterday night at the President’s office due to the President having to leave the island on his visit to China.

The President had expressed facts regarding the security situation prevailing in the country at present.

A senior minister of the government told our news team that Minister Rishard Bathiudeen made a lengthy explanation at this meeting regarding the allegations being made against him.

Cabinet granted approval to two defence agreements scheduled to be signed during the Chinese tour of the President as well.
