Moragoda to discuss fuel supply with India next week! 

Talks are scheduled to resume next week to obtain a $500 million loan and a $1 billion foreign exchange facility requested to supply fuel to Sri Lanka under the Indian Credit Scheme, it is reported.

It is reported from sources in New Delhi that this discussion has been delayed due to the Indian Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman being infected with Covid.

Meanwhile, Sri Lankan High Commissioner to New Delhi Milinda Moragoda is expected to participate in this meeting. 

Indian Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar is also scheduled to meet Moragoda, according to reports.
