President Maithripala Sirisena flew to Australia today for a three-day official visit

The president departed from the Bandaranaike International Airport on Tuesday afternoon, and is scheduled to reach Canberra – the Capital of Australia, tomorrow.

This is the first state visit made by a Sri Lankan Head of State to Australia.

Sixty three years ago, the late Prime Minister Sir John Kotelawala made a diplomatic visit to Australia. The visit by President Maithripala Sirisena would further strengthen the seven-decade bilateral relations between Sri Lanka and Australia.

The Sri Lankan mission in Australia has made arrangements to accommodate President Sirisena.
