Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Sri Lanka to attend the 14th UN Vesak Day celebrations in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

He was welcomed at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) in Katunayake by Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, several cabinet ministers and state officials.

The trip will commence in Colombo with a visit to the Seema Malaka at the Gangaramayya temple where he will take part in the traditional lamp-lighting ceremony. During his two-day visit, he will participate in the International Vesak Day celebrations, the biggest festival of Buddhists, inaugurate a hospital built with Indian assistance and address the Indian-origin Tamil community, besides attending some other programmes.

Indian Prime Minister stated that his visit to Sri Lanka is a sign of strong relationship between the two countries.

He also stated that it was an honour for him to join these celebrations with president Maithripala Sirisena and prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. “My visit brings to the fore one of the most abiding links between India and Sri Lanka – the shared heritage of Buddhism,” he said.
