Jan 17, Colombo: President of Maldives Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom will arrive in Sri Lanka on January 21, External Affairs Ministry sources said.

President Yameen, accepting Sri Lankan President's invitation delivered by the Sri Lanka's High Commissioner in the Maldives last month, has said that the warm and friendly relations have long characterized the bilateral relations between the Maldives and Sri Lanka and expressed confidence that his visit would further expand the close ties between the two countries.

During his stay in Colombo, the Maldivian President is expected to meet President Rajapaksa and the senior government officials for bilateral discussions.
