NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today called up Ranil Wickremesinghe to congratulate him on his party's victory in Sri Lankan parliamentary polls, and expressed confidence that the relations between the two countries will get better under his leadership.

"Spoke to Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe & congratulated him on his alliance's wonderful performance in the elections," Modi tweeted.

"I am confident that under Mr. Wickremesinghe's leadership, bilateral ties between India & Sri Lanka will get stronger," he added.
