Tue, Aug 4, 2015, 11:12 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 04, Colombo: Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena Tuesday thanked Turkey for the steps taken to strengthen bilateral relations and cooperation.

President Sirisena expressed his satisfaction about the improved cooperation between the two countries when the outgoing Turkish Ambassador Iskender Kemal Okyay paid a farewell call on the President at his official residence today (4).

President thanked the departing envoy for the services rendered during his tenure to promote bilateral relations between Sri Lanka and Turkey. He made a special mention about the support extended by Turkey to Sri Lanka at various international forums.

The President said Turkish construction companies have partnered in several construction projects including a housing project in Mannar where 100 houses were built.

Turkish envoy, on behalf of his government, invited President Sirisena to pay a state visit to Turkey as early as possible. Recalling his fond memories of visiting Turkey in 1996 as a member of Sri Lankan delegation to the Inter Parliamentary Union (IPU), the President accepted the invitation.
