Sri Lanka Malayasia to further strengthen ties with PM visit

Dec 14, 2017 (LBO) – Malaysian Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak will visit Sri Lanka from 17th to 19th December.

Issuing a statement, the Malaysian Foreign Ministry said a high-level team from Malayasia will arrive in advance facilitate the visit.

He will depart to Maldives after visiting Sri Lanka.

The visit is expected to further strengthen ties between the two countries, it said.

The Malaysian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Wan Zaidi Wan Abdullah has been reassigned by the ministry prior to the PM’s two-day official visit.

“He is due to take up an important assignment related to Malaysia’s chairmanship of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in April 2020. Given the scale of CHOGM, which will involve 52 countries, early preparations are essential for it to be a success,” it said.
