On the request of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, President Maithripala Sirisena approved a cash contribution of USD 25,000 to be presented to the Government of Myanmar as relief aid, following the devastation to life and property caused by the recent floods in the country.  The contribution was handed over to H.E. U Min Thein Zan, the Ambassador of Myanmar in Sri Lanka, by Foreign Secretary Chitranganee Wagiswara, on behalf of Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera, at a simple ceremony held at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday 14 August 2015.
