Mar 06, Colombo: United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman will visit Sri Lanka, the UN spokesman for Secretary General said Tuesday, after the government declared a state of emergency to quell the anti-Muslim riots spreading in the hill country.

Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for UN Secretary-General said the Under-Secretary-General Feltman will visit Sri Lanka from 9 to 11 March.

Feltman will meet with a wide range of Sri Lankan leaders including the President, the Prime Minister and other senior officials, political parties and civil society groups.

He said the visit was planned before the island nation declared the state of emergency and is part of ongoing UN engagement with Sri Lanka.

This will be the Under-Secretary-General's third visit to Sri Lanka. He visited the island nation in February 2017 and in 2015 to take stock of progress in the country and engage national stakeholders on the peacebuilding process.
