Foreign Minister Dinesh Gunawardane told Daily Mirror that the virtual meeting would take place today afternoon, and Sri Lanka would present its position on the situation.
The meeting is meant for the exploration of new areas of cooperation during the trying time. Covid-19 is spreading fast in the region taking a heavy toll on human lives and economy.
