Mar 09, Colombo: The Permanent Under-Secretary of the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Sir Peter Ricketts, is scheduled to visit Sri Lanka from March 9-10, the Sri Lanka Foreign Ministry said.
Sir Ricketts is scheduled to call on Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama on March 10 at the Ministry.
The Sri Lankan government recently objected to the British Foreign Office on UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband's participation at the Global Tamil Forum held in London. It is therefore believed that the matter would also figure during the discussion between Sir Ricketts and Bogollagama.
