[TamilNet, Friday, 06 January 2012, 15:58 GMT]
Sri Lanka’s President Mahinda Rajapakse is scheduled to visit Pakistan from 8 to 10 February. His visit is expected to be in return for Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari visit to Sri Lanka in 2010, Colombo media quoted SL foreign ministry sources. Rajapaksa's visit is in relation to the US dollars 200 million credit facility offered by Pakistan during Zadari’s visit last year, informed sources in Colombo said.
Sri Lankan Presidential secretary Lalith Weeratunge, SL External Affairs Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris, Central Bank Governor Ajith Nivard Cabral and several other ministers and top government officials are to accompany Mr. Rajapaksa to Pakistan.
Pakistan has been providing military assistance to Sri Lanka in its genocidal war against Eezham Tamils.
