Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s Congratulatory Message to Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern
It is with great pleasure I extend my warmest congratulations to you on your appointment as the 40th Prime Minister of New Zealand. Your appointment to this important position is testimony to the recognition of your leadership and the trust placed in you by the people. I have no doubt New Zealand will continue to grow and prosper under your leadership in the years to come.
The bilateral relations between Sri Lanka and New Zealand have risen to new heights in recent times, particularly in the backdrop of high level political engagement. I recall with pleasant memories my own visit to your beautiful country in October 2016, and look forward to working with you in further strengthening our bilateral relations.
Please accept Excellency, the assurances of my heights consideration and my personal best wishes for your good health and happiness.
