The Honorable Namal Rajapaksa, MP, Calls on Ambassador Haidari
Ambassador Haidari admires the Hon. Rajapaksa's leadership in support of youth, engaging with impoverished villages in his constituency and promoting inter-faith solidarity against intolerance. They took note of pluralism and diversity as the core strengths of multiethnic nations like Afghanistan and Sri Lanka and that internal unity always serves as the best defense against external interference in contexts like those of the two nations.
The Hon. Rajapaksa expressed an interest in visiting Afghanistan where the Ambassador warmly welcomed him whenever he alone or together with the Honorable Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa is able to visit.
Afghanistan and Sri Lanka share ancient civilizational ties, which underpin our growing relations today.
