June 16, Colombo: A meeting between Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena and the Russian President Vladimir Putin was held Saturday (15) in Tajikistan capital of Dushanbe.

The President met with his Russian counterpart on the sidelines of the 5th Summit of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) held in Dushanbe on June 14-15.

During the meeting, the two leaders focused attention on further strengthening the bilateral relations between Sri Lanka and Russia and on several important regional issues.

The U.S. has imposed sanctions on some of the goods imported from Russia to Sri Lanka, and both leaders discussed how to proceed in the future in this regard.

"It was wonderful to catch up with my good friend and the leader of Sri Lanka's friendly nation of Russia Vladimir Putin yesterday. During our special discussion, we deliberated on important measures to curb extremism and ensure people's safety in Asia," President Sirisena said in a Tweet.
