June 11, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe yesterday returned to the island following a visit to the United States to attend the World Ocean Summit and also to receive medical treatment.

Several United National Party ministers including Ministers Lakshman Kiriella, Ravi Karunanayake, Sagala Ratnayake, Thalatha Atukorala, and John Amaratunga were at the Bandaranaike International Airport to greet the Premier on arrival.

The Premier left the island two weeks ago on a private visit to the United States for a medical examination and later delivered a speech at the high-level UN Ocean Conference at UN headquarters in New York on 6th June.

During his visit to New York, the Sri Lankan Prime Minister called on the UN Secretary General António Guterres at the UN headquarters in New York Wednesday.

He also met with the Secretary General of the Commonwealth Patricia Scotland and held discussions on a wide range of issues relating to Sri Lanka's relations with the Commonwealth and other matters of mutual interest.
