President Sirisena And 27-Member Delegation Return To Island After Attending Asian Civilizations Dialogue

A 27-member delegation left for China accompanying President Sirisena to attend the International conference.

Before leaving for China, however, President Sirisena appointed State Minister of Defence Ruwan Wijewardena as the Acting Minister of Defence.
