Seychelles to open High Commission in SL

29 June 2014 10:27 am - 13     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Seychelles has announced it plans to open a diplomatic mission in Sri Lanka later this year. This follows the visit of Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who leaves Seychelles later today at the end of a three day official visit.

He leaves behind a permanent diplomatic presence with the opening yesterday afternoon of the first Sri Lankan High Commission in the Indian Ocean archipelago.

The Sri-Lankan head of state opened the High Commission office in the Capital City building in the Seychelles capital of Victoria in the presence of Seychelles President James Michel, Vice President Danny Faure and officials of the two countries.

Rajatha Piyatissa who recently presented his credentials to Michel as the new resident High Commissioner to the archipelago will be in charge of his country’s diplomatic mission. (Seychelles News Agency)

    This is definitely going to facilitate the drugs trade between the two countries.
