Sri Lanka’s non-resident High Commissioner to the Bahamas resident in New York, Kshenuka Senewiratne, presented credentials to the Governor General of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, Cornelius A. Smith, on March 4 at the Government House in Nassau.

High Commissioner Senewiratne conveyed the warm greetings and best wishes of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to the Governor General and observed that she was honoured to be Sri Lanka’s new envoy to the Bahamas. She reiterated the heartfelt condolences on behalf of the President and the Government of Sri Lanka on the devastation and loss of life caused by hurricane Dorian and expressed admiration at the resilience and fortitude displayed by the people of the Bahamas and the leadership provided by that government in the aftermath of the tragic event.

The High Commissioner pledged to further expand the ties of the two countries during her tenure. She highlighted the commonalities between the two nations, being developing island states and being members of the Commonwealth, Group of 77 and China and the Non Aligned Movement.

The High Commissioner informed that Gotabaya Rajapaksa follows a non-aligned foreign policy and finds home grown solutions to overcome contemporary domestic challenges.
