Colombo: The Foundation for Buddhist Brotherhood of Sri Lanka has greeted India recently as the nation celebrated its IndependenceDay on Monday.
The organization described India as an 'invaluable neighbour'.
“India, our invaluable neighbour and the largest democracy in the world, is today celebrating her Independence Day which is a momentous annual event in the annals of independent India,” the official statement of the foundation read as quoted by ANI.
Highlighting the bilateral ties between the two nations, the Chairman of the Foundation for Buddhist Brotherhood, Dr Damenda Porage stated that the people of Sri Lanka are delighted in sharing the spirit of the celebrations with India and conveying their greetings to the government of India and its people.
“We gratefully reminisce the very rare historical occasion of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s arrival to participate in the UN-declared international Vesak day celebrations in Colombo in May 2017; his immediate arrival in Sri Lanka to share our grievances after disastrous bomb blasts on Easter Sunday on the 21st of April 2019; and the ever-continuing magnanimous support and assistance towards strengthening the historical, cultural, spiritual, linguistic and traditional relations,” he added.
