Prime Minister Khan would be the fourth foreign head of state to address the Sri Lankan Parliament in recent times, if his planned visit goes ahead. Late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher addressed the Sri Lankan Parliament in 1985, Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Sinawatra in 2013 and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2015.
