Japanese Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera will visit Sri Lanka from August 20 to 22. It will be the first time ever for a Japanese Defense Minister to visit Sri Lanka.
During his visit he will hold talks with State Minister of Defense, Ruwan Wijewardene and other government leaders. He is also expected to undertake field visits outside Colombo.
The Embassy of Japan hopes this visit will further help consolidate the “Comprehensive Partnership” between Japan and Sri Lanka.
