Colombo (News 1st); Indian High Commissioner Gopal Baglay engaged in three high-level meetings including with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa yesterday.

The Hindu website reported that India’s High Commissioner to Sri Lanka had met with the President, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa and Foreign Minister Dinesh Gunawardena yesterday.

The meetings came as Sri Lanka backed out of an agreement with India and Japan to develop the East Container Terminal of the Colombo Port.

According to the report, the Indian envoy’s message was that Sri Lanka must adhere to the tripartite agreement with Japan and India to jointly develop the Colombo Port’s East Container Terminal.

This week the Sri Lankan government announced that the operations of the East Container Terminal would be entrusted completely with the Sri Lanka Ports Authority.
