Ambassadors of the Czech Republic and Egypt Make Farewell Calls on the Prime Minister

The non-resident Ambassador of the Czech Republic to Sri Lanka Milan Havorka and the Ambassador of Egypt to Sri Lanka Hussein El Saharty made farewell calls on Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa this week before completing their tenure as ambassadors to Sri Lanka.
Ambassador Havorka expressed gratitude for all the support received during his tenure while Ambassador El Saharty told the Prime Minister that he’s “very grateful for the hospitality and kindness.”
Both ambassadors briefed the Prime Minister on work that has been completed during their tenures. Ambassador Havorka has served as the non-resident ambassador based in New Delhi for six years while Ambassador Saharty has served in Sri Lanka for four years.
Both diplomats commended the Government on the vaccination drive implemented throughout the island, and for systematically and safely opening up the country. They said there is a great deal of interest among tourists from their respective countries to undertake visits to Sri Lanka. Opening up the country in this manner with proper health protocols, they said, will instill confidence among tourists looking forward to visiting Sri Lanka.
Other topics discussed during the two meetings included the enhancement of people-to-people connections, economic and defense cooperation, bilateral cultural relations and promoting exchanges between parliamentarians.
