July 30, Colombo: Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapaksa Saturday hosted the current Indian Foreign Secretary, Ms. Nirupama Rao for a breakfast meeting at the President's House to wish her well in her new assignment.

Former Indian High Commissioner in Sri Lanka, Ms. Rao arrived in Colombo last night on a three-day official visit on an invitation of President before retiring as the foreign secretary and assuming her new post as the Ambassador of India to the United States.

Indian media reported that the President's office handed over a formal invitation to her "about five days ago" for a visit before her retirement as Foreign Secretary and this visit was a response to that invitation.

Ms. Rao is expected to meet Sri Lankan officials and Ministers with whom she shared working relationships when in Sri Lanka before her departure on Sunday.
