Kabul, Colombo to set up resident missions

20 December, 2012

KABUL: Sri Lanka and Afghanistan on Wednesday announced their plans to open resident missions in Kabul and Colombo for strengthening relations including cooperation on defence-related issues.

Afghan Foreign Minister Zalmai Rassoul, currently on four-day visit to Sri Lanka, made the announcement at a joint media briefing with External Affairs Minister Prof. GL Peries in Colombo.

Rassoul met high-level Sri Lankan government officials for discussions on cooperation in the field of economy, education, science and technology, reported a Colombo-based newspaper, Daily Mirror.

During the discussions, the foreign ministers noted that they were faced with similar issues, dealing with the process of reconciliation with homegrown solutions to the insurgency.

On Tuesday, Rassoul flew to Colombo at the head of a delegation of senior officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He exchanged views with Peries on regional and international issues of common interest.

During the visit, he will call on President Mahinda Rajapaksa and meet Minister of Economic Development Basil Rajapaksa and Secretary to Ministry of Defence and Urban Development Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

End.
