According to the Ministry of External Affairs, the ceremony to welcome President Hameed Karzai will be held on March 6 , which will be followed by bilateral discussions held between the two countries.

During the Afghan President’s visit, three memoranda of understanding between the two countries for cooperation in training of Afghan nurses in Sri Lanka, education and sports are to be signed.
