The Trump administration's point person for South and Central Asia, Alice G Wells, will visit Sri Lanka and India next week for a series of bilateral meetings, officials said.

She is scheduled to start her South Asia trip from Sri Lanka. She will be in Colombo January 13-14.

During her meetings she would meet with senior government officials and members of civil society to discuss a range of bilateral and regional issues, including shared interests in a free and open Indo-Pacific region that fosters prosperity, democracy, justice, and human rights, the department said.

After visiting Sri Lanka Ms Wells will travel to India, from January 15-18, to attend the Raisina Dialogue, the State Department said and added that she will be in Islamabad from January 19-22.

Wells will meet with senior government officials to advance the US-India strategic global partnership following the success of the 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue last month, the department said.

During the meetings she will discuss topics of mutual interest with members of the business community and civil society, it said. (news18)
