He said that India and Sri Lanka enjoy warm and long-standing relations which stemmed from people to people interactions over millennia and I am glad that the time tested bonds of friendship between the two nations continue to be reinforced through ever-growing cooperation and support in many spheres of strategic interests that we share.

“Your leadership offers fresh impetus to our joint endeavours to nurture and strengthen the cordial ties we enjoy and I look forward to working closely with you towards this end”, President Wickremesinghe further said. Ranil Wickremesinghe was elected as the eighth President of Sri Lanka on July 20, 2022 and Droupadi Murmu was elected the 15th President of India on July 21, 2022.
