* Sri Lankan President likely to meet former President to discuss religious harmony in the country
Thu, Mar 20, 2014, 11:35 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 20, Colombo: President of Sri Lanka Mahinda Rajapaksa has reportedly agreed to meet former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga following a request made by the former President.

She has requested for a meeting with the President to discuss religious harmony in the country.

An English daily reported today that the President has agreed to meet the former President after she had made a request for the second time.

Kumaratunga had previously in a letter to Presidential Secretary Lalith Weeratunga requested for an appointment to meet the President to discuss religious harmony in the country.

She then told the media after a meeting with the Opposition Leader that she had not received a positive response to her request for a meeting with the President.

Kumaratunga had reportedly sent a letter directly to the President seeking an appointment.
