Nov 15, Colombo: Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa has extended his congratulations to the new leader of China Xi Jinping who was confirmed yesterday as the head of the state.

Conveying his congratulations in a letter, President Rajapaksa has said that he believes Xi Jinping's experience in both local and international politics will enable him to guide China in the next decade.

President Rajapaksa has further noted that he hopes, under the guidance of the new leader of China, the ties between China and Sri Lanka will strengthen further, according to the national news agency.
