New Delhi, June 8 (ANI): Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa arrived in New Delhi on Tuesday evening on a three-day visit to India.

It has been reported that President Rajapaksa will be meeting Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee later today.

The visiting President is expected to hold talks with Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, President Pratibha Devisingh Patil and External Affairs Minister S M Krishna during his stay.

The visit comes amid growing concern in Sri Lanka over a proposed Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) between the two neighbours.

President Rajapaksa is expected to help the island nation enlist more support from India in rebuilding and rehabilitating people in the northern part of the country, which was liberated from the Tamil Tigers last year ending decades of strife. (ANI)
