The French Ambassador in Sri Lanka, Ms. Christine Robichon, accompanied by two key officials of the embassy visited Jaffna peninsula Thursday where she first met Jaffna Government Agent (GA) K. Ganesh at Jaffna Secretariat. She later went to the French Friendship Cultural Centre (FFCC) located in Thirunelveali to observe its activities, sources in Jaffna said.



Ms. Chiristine Robichon was keen in learning about normalcy of life in Jaffna peninsula, the needs and livelihoods of the resettled Vanni Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the peninsula in her discussion with the GA, Jaffna Secretariat sources said.

Foreign High Commissioners to Sri Lanka have been frequently visiting Jaffna peninsula after the opening of A9 road, the sources added.

China's Ambassador to Sri Lanka visited Jaffna recently and held talks with the officials who are involved in the road development projects in process with Chinese aid. The Chinese Ambassador held talks also with the high officers of Sri Lanka Army in Jaffna.
