Indian Minister of External Affairs Mr. Salman Khurshid called on President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the President’s House this morning. A number of issues of mutual interest were discussed during the meeting with the underlying objective of developing strategies for the two countries to coordinate more closely towards further strengthening relations.

Commenting on the recently-concluded provincial elections in the Northern Province, Mr. Khurshid commended President Rajapaksa’s stewardship in holding elections after decades and said he felt it was a very important step for society, one that will likely be viewed as a great historic moment.

On the issue of the implementation of the 13th Amendment, President Rajapaksa stated that “Parliament is the best forum to address the issue,” adding that members of the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) should engage in dialogue and come up with a solution that is in line with what the people want.
