Maldives President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih is scheduled to arrive in Sri Lanka on year-end holiday.
Speaking to Maldives RaajjeMV regarding the president’s trip, an official at the President’s Office stated that his four-day trip will begin on Tuesday and Solih will return to the Maldives on Friday.
Though the unofficial trip has been planned, the president has relatives residing in the neighbouring country and he travelled there in early 2019 as well.
Since assuming office in November 2018, Solih visited Sri Lanka upon the official invitation of former Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to attend the country’s Independence Day celebrations. During that visit, the president also met with the Maldivian community residing in Sri Lanka and enquired on their well-being and concerns.
