Foreign Office Consultations Between Sri Lanka and Kazakhstan Scheduled for April 11, 2024

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced that Foreign Office Consultations between Sri Lanka and Kazakhstan are slated to take place on April 11, 2024, in Astana.

In a statement released by the Foreign Ministry, it was revealed that the Sri Lanka Delegation will be headed by Foreign Secretary Aruni Wijewardane.

The decision to convene these consultations follows a previous meeting between President Ranil Wickremesinghe and Kazakhstan President Kassym-Jomart K. Tokayev, during which a mutual agreement was reached to establish a resident Sri Lanka Embassy in Kazakhstan. Discussions during the upcoming sessions in Kazakhstan are anticipated to cover topics such as trade, investment, tourism, and the logistical details regarding the opening of the new Sri Lanka mission.

Additionally, alongside the Foreign Office Consultations, meetings are also scheduled to be held with the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) Secretariat in Astana, where Sri Lanka holds membership.

Post the consultations in Astana, the delegation led by the Foreign Secretary will proceed to Bishkek for the inaugural bilateral consultations between the Foreign Ministries of Sri Lanka and the Kyrgyz Republic, set to occur on April 15, 2024.

The discussions in the Kyrgyz Republic will center on identifying areas of cooperation, with plans to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two Foreign Ministries on Bilateral Consultations, as per the ministry’s statement.
