Lanka –Thai diplomatic relations celebrated in Bangkok

The Embassy of Sri Lanka in Thailand together with the institute of Asian Studies of the Chulalongkorn University co-hosted an event at the Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok to mark the 65th Anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The launch of a travelogue written by Ballobh Krityanavaj in traditional Thai Niras/Nirat poems titled Sri Lanka CharikaKavya was the highlight of the celebrations. The first copy of the book was presented to the Chief Guest Culture Minister of Thailand Ittipol Khunplume.

The message issued on the Anniversary by Prime Minister and Culture, Buddha Sasana and Religious Affairs Minister of Sri Lanka Mahinda Rajapaksa was read by Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to Thailand Samantha K. Jayasuriya. Through the Niiraspoems, the author expresses his feelings on his tours around Sri Lankan Buddhist Trails and other places, as well as activities of interest to a Thai traveller.

Embassy Commerce Counsellor Anil Sirimanna facilitated the editorial board of the book launch, and the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau (SLTPB) has supported the book, as a tool of promoting Sri Lankan Buddhist Trails among the Thai Public. Copies of the book will be distributed among schools, libraries, Buddhist temples and travel agents in Thailand.
