On his arrival, President Michel was honoured with the presidential salute of the Guard of Honour of the Sri Lankan Navy and the 21-gun salute of the Sri Lankan Army.

The ceremony also included colourful dances by Sri Lankan performers.

Meanwhile, the Seychelles flags and large billboards portraying photos of President Michel and his Sri Lankan counterpart, President Rajapaksa, lined the busy streets of Colombo welcoming the Seychellois president on his first state visit to that country.

“The people of Sri Lanka warmly welcomes the President of Seychelles James Alix Michel”, read the billboards, illustrating the good relations and friendship between the two island states.
