PM Narendra Modi congratulates new Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe


COLOMBO: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated Sri Lanka‘s newly-elected President Ranil Wickremesinghe and said that India will continue to be supportive of the quest of the people of the island nation for stability and economic recovery, through established democratic means, the Indian high commission said on Tuesday.
Wickremesinghe, 73, was on Thursday sworn in as Sri Lanka’s eighth president after he was elected by lawmakers.
“PM @narendramodi sent a congratulatory letter to H.E President @RW_UNP on his election,” the high commission of India in Colombo said in a tweet.
“PM reiterated that India will continue to be supportive of the quest of the people of Sri Lanka for stability and economic recovery, through established democratic means, institutions and constitutional framework,” it said.
The Prime Minister also conveyed that he looked forward to working closely with the Sri Lankan President for the mutual benefit of people and strengthening the age-old, close and friendly relations between India and Sri Lanka, it added.
In Colombo, Indian high commissioner Gopal Baglay on Tuesday paid a courtesy call on newly-appointed Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena and conveyed greetings from the leadership, government and people of India.
“High commissioner thanked the PM for his guidance in various capacities to strengthen the long-standing and close India-Sri Lankan relations in all areas of engagement. High commissioner also thanked him for his whole-hearted appreciation for India’s unprecedented support to the people of Sri Lanka,” the Indian mission tweeted.
The Indian government assistance to Sri Lanka has reached almost $4 billion since January this year.
Sri Lanka needs about $5 billion in the next six months to cover basic necessities for its 22 million people, who have been struggling with long queues, worsening shortages and power cuts.
