Apr 26, Colombo: The Maldivian Minister of Foreign Affairs Ms. Dunya Maumoon has assured Maldives' continuous support to Sri Lanka on the international front when she called on Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa at Temple Trees Saturday.

"On the international front, let me assure you of the Maldives' continuous support," Ms. Maumoon told the President during the meeting this morning.

Maldivian Minister's discussion with the President focused on a number of matters of mutual interest including education and further strengthening bilateral relations.

Ms. Maumoon will join former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, who is currently in Sri Lanka, for a reception President Rajapaksa is hosting as the Chair-in-Office of the Commonwealth to celebrate cultural diversity of Commonwealth nations.

The Acting High Commissioner of Maldives in Sri Lanka Dr. Hassian Niyaaz accompanied Ms. Maumoon.

Minister of External Affairs Prof. G.L. Peiris, Secretary to the President Mr. Lalith Weeratunga and Secretary of the Ministry of External Affairs Mrs. Kshenuka Senewiratne were present for the meeting.
