Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif arrived in the island a short while on a three-day official visit.

This is Sharif’s first visit to Sri Lanka since President Maithripala Sirisena took office. Sharif last visited the island nation in November 2013 for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).

Sri Lanka is expected to sign ten Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs) and pacts with Pakistan during Prime Minister Sharif’s visit.
