Dec 12, Colombo: Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak will pay a two-day official visit to Sri Lanka starting from 17 December, the Malaysian Foreign Ministry said in a statement today.

The Foreign Ministry Wisma Putra said in a "planned movement" the Malaysian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Wan Zaidi Wan Abdullah was reassigned and given a new assignment prior to the Prime Minister's visit.

Wan Abdullah is due to take up an important assignment related to Malaysia’s chairmanship of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in April 2020.

Wisma Putra said a high-level team from the ministry will arrive as an advance party to help in the visit by the Prime Minister Najib, who will depart to Maldives after visiting Sri Lanka.

Wisma Putra said Malaysia enjoys a warm relationship with Sri Lanka and the Prime Minister's visit is expected to further strengthen ties between the countries.
