India is likely to push for an early finalisation of the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement with Sri Lanka during the September 14-16 visit of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to New Delhi.
It will be the newly elected Sri Lankan PM’s first visit to New Delhi, as well as his first official visit abroad after January, when he was first appointed to the post.
Former president Chandrika Kumaratunga, who is working closely with the new government and is currently on a visit to India, confirmed Wickremesinghe’s visit during an interaction with journalists here.
