PM Modi Pays Tribute To Easter Bombing Victims In Sri Lanka

Colombo: Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Sri Lanka on Sunday morning, becoming the first foreign leader to visit the country after the deadly Easter blasts which killed over 250 people.

“I am confident Sri Lanka will rise again. Cowardly acts of terror cannot defeat the spirit of Sri Lanka. India stands in solidarity with the people of Sri Lanka,” PM Modi tweeted.

He was received by his Sri Lankan counterpart Ranil Wickremesinghe at the Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo.

“Happy to be back in Sri Lanka, my third visit to this beautiful island in four years. Share the warmth shown by the people of SL in equal measure. India never forgets her friends when they are in need. Deeply touched by the ceremonial welcome,” Modi tweeted soon after his arrival in Colombo.

During his day-long visit, Prime Minister Modi will hold talks with President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Wickremesinghe and Leader of the Opposition Mahinda Rajapaksa. A delegation of the main Tamil party, called ‘The Tamil National Alliance’, is also expected to meet him.
