India is keen to establish refinery and bunkering operations in Sri Lanka, Indian Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on Saturday and hoped the country will once again be in a position to export petroleum products to Bangladesh with the commissioning of Paradip refinery in India.

The minister stated this during bilateral meetings with Tawfiq-e-Elahi Chowdhury, Energy Adviser to Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Anoma Gamage, Deputy Minister of Petroleum Resources Development of Sri Lanka.

Both were in Sri Lanka to participate in a ceremony at Paradip where Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be dedicating the Indian Oil refinery today.(PTI)
