PM leaves on 3-nation tour, in Sri Lanka on March 13-14

Prime Minister Narendra Modi left for Seychelles on Tuesday on the first leg of his five-day visit to three key Indian Ocean countries that also includes Mauritius and Sri Lanka, asserting that strong relations with them was “vital” for India’s security and progress.

Modi, who will be the first Indian Prime Minister to travel to Seychelles in 33 years and to Sri Lanka in 28 years, is expected to tap into the “substantive” goodwill and historical linkages between India and the three Indian Ocean economies which offer new possibilities of cooperation in defence and economic spheres.
