Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said his visit to the Maldives and Sri Lanka beginning today reflects the importance India attaches to its ''Neighbourhood First'' policy and that it will further cement bilateral ties with the two maritime countries.

Prime Minister Modi will first travel to the Maldives, in his first bilateral visit after retaining power in the Lok Sabha polls.

After that he will arrive in Sri Lanka tomorrow.

In a pre-departure statement, he said his visit to Sri Lanka is to express India's solidarity with the government and the people of the island nation in the wake of the terrorist attacks on April 21st.

Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena visited India last week for Modi's swearing-in ceremony.
