UN will always work closely with SL – ASG Khiari
The United Nations will always work closely with Sri Lanka, a top UN official said yesterday (25).
Assistant secretary general for political, peace-building and peace operations Khaled Khiari said so during a meeting with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa at the Presidential Secretariat in Colombo.
Speaking further, he appreciated Sri Lanka’s commitment to achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
The President explained the step being taken to prevent climate change through environmental conservation programmes.
He expressed gratitude to UN agencies and donors for having assisted Sri Lanka to make the Covid-19 vaccination drive a success and in facing other related challenges.
The President added that he hoped that the invitation he had extended to the diaspora to work together with all communities after visiting Sri Lanka would be met with positive initiatives.
