He will also participate in the closing ceremony of the Oil Spill Incident Management Training of the Sri Lanka Coast Guard under the Grant Aid of Government of Japan, to be held on today at the Colombo Port. The training was held under the “Maritime Disaster Measures and Marine Environment Protection Project”.

The Japan Coast Guard has provided short-term experts on oil spill incident management with relevant equipment which will be utilised to improve maritime safety and strengthen control of the maritime borders of Sri Lanka. In addition, during his stay, he will attend the Japan-Sri Lanka Navy to Navy staff talks to be held for the first time. The Embassy of Japan expects that this visit will help further consolidate the “comprehensive partnership” between Japan and Sri Lanka. (Kelum Bandara)

    He is coming to give a warning to GOSL that if they do not abide by good practices of Governance, Japanese funds will be at stake, specifically activities such as Sirisena's coup that destabilizes the nation. This is the true purpose of his visit.
