[youtube id=”Z65TSwK4DBk”]Geography, History, and Culture. Business, Buddhism and Strategy. The relations between India and Sri Lanka are truly multifarious, and are driven by enduring bonds of friendship and fraternal empathy between the people of India and Sri Lanka.

Now, the multi-faceted relations are set to acquire a new bounce and energy with the February 15-17 visit of Sri Lanka President Maithripala Sirisena to India. President Maithrapala comes to India barely days after taking charge of the island nation following a spectacular victory of his party in the national elections. The choice of India by President Maithripala as his first overseas destination underlines the importance Sri Lanka’s new government attaches to deepening relations with India, a time-tested friend and partner.
