Sri Lanka and the Principality of Andorra, a European microstate co-administered by Roman Catholic Bishop of Urgell in Spain and the President of France, have formally established diplomatic relations by signing the Joint Communiqué on November 30.

Issuing a statement, the Foreign Affairs Ministry said the mutual understanding and friendship between the two countries would be enhanced by establishing bilateral diplomatic relations.

“It will also help to explore new avenues of bilateral cooperation in the fields of trade, culture, tourism, and investment,” it said.

The Joint Communiqué was signed at the Sri Lanka Permanent Mission in New York between Permanent Representative of Sri Lanka to the United Nations, Rohan Perera and Permanent Representative of the Principality of Andorra to the United Nations, Elisenda Vives Balmaña.

Andorra, with a population of approximately 85,000, is situated between Spain and France. It is the sixth-smallest nation in Europe.
