President Mahinda Rajapaksa is due to participate in the 14th summit of the Group 15 in Tehran on May 17 and is scheduled to take over the chairmanship of the Group during the summit, the Fars News Agency reported. 

A high-level delegation led by President Rajapaksa will attend the summit. Rajapaksa is scheduled to meet Iranian President Ahmadinejad on the sidelines of the meeting to discuss strengthening of ties between the two countries.

While Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is scheduled to attend the summit, Venezuelan envoy to Tehran in an interview with FNA announced that President Hugo Chavez also plans to take part in the conference.

President Ahmadinejad has invited Syrian President Bashar a-Assad to attend the summit as a special guest.

The G-15, which was established in 1989 as a community of the most successful Third World countries, comprises 18 countries from Asia, Africa and Latin America.

Iran, Algeria, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kenya, Nigeria, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Venezuela and Zimbabwe are members of the Group.

    Now the world is different. Rich countries have started begging.

    Well said Nimal. Very appropriate when one reads through the list of participating countries. Hope G-15 will give us GSP+ too.

    Monday, 03 May 2010 02:50 PM

    Congratulations Mr. President!

    Tuesday, 04 May 2010 04:43 AM

    Not only to us, may be to EU in the coming years. Wait and see !!!

    What are out comes to the world by holding such meetings and postings, is heading for peace or heading for something else??? Sri Lanka has lots to do in terms of the country development and politicians to spend time to plan toward development of the country like Singapore who is not much involved in world politics. This is the time for Sri Lanka to think about country development and eradicating corruption especially, at the time the war against terrorist is over.

    Outcasts? India and Brazil are in the top 10 economies by GDP in the world. Mexico, Iran and Indonesia are in the top 20.

    Tuesday, 04 May 2010 01:51 AM

    How many Sri Lankan tourists consist in this 'high level' delegation ?

    Monday, 03 May 2010 12:53 PM

    We had G-7 which became G-8, and then G-20. G-15 is another entity. India is the only country in evrything. They have no idea where they really belong.
