Accordingly, the President will be leaving the country this next weekend and even now, the relevant affairs are being taken care of at the Sri Lankan High Commission in London.

Her Majesty’s funeral will take place on September 19 and the Sri Lankan President will leave for the UK the day before. Expecting to stay in the country for three days, Mr. Wickremesinghe is also in an attempt to meet a group of delegates of the British Government.

The President is scheduled to return to Sri Lanka on the 20th.

Meanwhile, the government has declared September 19 as a national day of mourning.
