Maithri-Putin powwow in Moscow next March


President Maithripala Sirisena is scheduled to visit Moscow in late March next year.

President Sirisena would meet Russian President Vladimir Putin on March 23, Russian ambassador in Colombo Alexander Karchava yesterday announced.

Addressing the media at the Russian Embassy, Ambassador Karchava explained the status on bilateral relations and efforts to further strengthen trade and investment.

Responding to a query, the Ambassador said that Russia could meet Sri Lanka’s defence requirements. The official declined to compare Russian military hardware with those produced by other countries while insisting that theirs were the originals. (SF)
