Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said that Iran is prepared to render technical and engineering services to Sri Lanka, the IRNA reported today.

He has made the remarks in a meeting with Speaker Karu Jayasuriya who arrived in Tehran on Saturday to attend Rouhani’s oath-taking ceremony on August 5.

“Iran-Sri Lanka ties have always been friendly and excellent and removal of sanctions today has created good opportunities for promoting mutual cooperation which should be used optimally in line with boosting bilateral ties,” he said.

He further noted that Sri Lankan official’s visit can give a fresh impetus to parliamentary relations.

Stressing the need for developing cooperation between the two countries’ private sectors, President Rouhani said that Iran is ready to meet the needs of Sri Lanka in the field of technical and engineering services.

While appreciating Iran’s hospitality, Speaker Jayasuriya congratulated Rouhani’s re-election, recalling the two countries’ long-standing historical and cultural ties.

“People of Sri Lanka have a great respect to the Iranian nation,” he said.

Appreciating Iran’s support to the country in various fields, he called for Iranian private sector’s presence in Sri Lankan infrastructural projects.

    See what happened to the people of Bandarawela. Thanks, but no thanks.

    Ask these idiots to compensate for Uma Oya damage and disclose to whom they paid commission at the start of that project during MR regime.

    You are experts in dry desert tunneling - not hydraulic ones.Better just stick to sales of oil if possible at a concessionary price.

    Stupid Sri Lankan politicians falling at the feet of the desert leaders who if not for the oil would be roaming in camels.

    Its sad to read some of the comments made above by readers. Sri Lanka has had close relations with Iran from the time of our ancient kings. in fact it is thought that Iran contributed to our ancient irrigation technology which even to this day amazes an observer. They have been and are a technologically very advanced Country. The Uma Oya water drainage into the tunnel is a natural phenomenon and has an engineering solution. The present situation has been caused by mismanagement and mishandling of the problems

    OMG apologist for Iran. Uma Oya project was a hurried flip flop with basic engineering skills and use of inferior materials as recently reported.

    Haramanis Tuesday, 08 August 2017 07:09 AM

    Bala and others - sorry to see that you are so caught up in misinformation and politics of the blame game used to cover up mismanagement.

    Haramanis - you must be a Shia which whole world refuse, I bet this

    Haramanis Tuesday, 08 August 2017 11:51 AM

    Sunni or Shia - what's the difference?What I know is that Iran has been a very good friend to Sri Lanka from ancient times - more recently helping us with arms and oil during the fight against terrorists. By the way North Korea was also helping us. While USA, UK and most of the West and India were indirectly and directly helping prolong terrorism in this Country to have leverage over us

    Like Uma Oya? no thanks!
