Chinese delegation to meet President, Prime Minister

A high-powered Chinese delegation led by former Chinese Foreign Minister and the current Communist Party Political Bureau Member Yang Jiechi, is expected to meet with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa today.

The delegation was slated to arrive in the country late yesterday evening.

Being the first ever Chinese visit in the South Asian region since the global Corona epidemic, the visit is expected to strengthen cooperation between Sri Lanka and China in combating the global pandemic and reviving economic relations.

The travel bubble set up for the purpose of this important visit will confine the delegation to Colombo and restrict to just two meetings with the Head of State and the Prime Minister, under the strict health protocol prescribed by the Health Ministry, a communiqué issued by the Foreign Ministry said.
