Indian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Gopal Baglay has called on Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena and discussed wide-ranging bilateral issues, including investments, shared heritage and capacity building in the crisis-hit island nation.
The Indian High Commission last week held the first round of talks with the Sri Lankan Government on restructuring the bilateral official debt of the island nation.
The Indian High Commission tweeted, “High Commissioner called on H.E PM @DCRGunawardena. Discussed broad ranging bilateral issues of common interest including investments, shared heritage and capacity building”.
The Indian government’s assistance to crisis-hit Sri Lanka has reached almost USD 4 billion since January this year.
The Indian assistance has also helped Sri Lanka’s second-largest export industry – the tea industry – to operate amidst adversity.
