It is reported from political sources that President Ranil Wickremesinghe is going to India next month as his first official visit after assuming the presidency.
The President is expected to visit India between July 20 and 30.
It is also learned that 21 July has been tentatively set for the meeting between Wickremesinghe and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Although it is the usual practice of most Sri Lankan presidents to make their first official visit to India after assuming office, Wickremesinghe could not make the visit until India officially extended an invitation to him.
It is also reported that Mr. Wickramasinghe is scheduled to visit France at the end of this month before his visit to India.
