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.

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