President Mahinda Rajapaksa accepted an invitation from the Secretary-General of the International Conference of Asian Political Parties (ICAPP) to host the high-level meeting in Sri Lanka in 2014.

This decision was made when Secretary-General Mr. Chung Eui-yong met President Rajapaksa this morning at Temple Trees.

Mr. Eui-yong said other ICAPP members were “very enthusiastic” about the possibility of Sri Lanka hosting the next conference, which is expected to attract more than 100 different political parties from around Asia.

“Sri Lanka is very strategically located for such a meeting,” Mr. Eui-yong said.

President Rajapaksa addressed a special conference of ICAPP in Shaanxi Province during his state visit to China in May of this year under the theme “Promote Green Development and Build a Beautiful Asia Together.”

Ambassador of the Republic of Korea in Sri Lanka Mr. Jongmoon Choi and Secretary to the President Mr. Lalith Weeratunga also joined the meeting.
