On the occasion of celebrating the 62 years of relationship, Sri Lanka’s Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa in a Twitter message said the leadership of both nations are committed to “continue and further strengthen the friendship and bilateral relationship to mutually benefit both our nations.”

Issuing a statement on the occasion, the Afghan Ambassador in Sri Lanka, M.
