Maldivian and Sri Lankan Presidents chat with people over a broken fence

President of the Republic of Maldives Mohamed Nasheed arrived in Sri Lanka today for an official visit.

He arrived in the island yesterday morning around 11.15 with a six member delegation.

He was welcomed by the Minister of External Affairs Professor G.L. Peiris at the Katunayake International Airport.

The Maldivian President who worked once in Sri Lanka as a journalist as well while being a fugitive from Gayum's dictatorial regime met the President of Sri Lanka today at Hambanthota.

Sri Lanka President who hails from this remote district is in a dream of turning it into a commercial hub. Rarely, a local leader shared a moment with a foreign counterpart in this way in a remote area.

They watched the the Sri Lanka- Australia third One Day International at Sooriyawewa International Cricket Stadium and had a friendly chat with the local residents over a broken fence, a common scene a step away from development hoopla.
