President to attend Beijing Olympics

Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa will be present at the Beijing Olympics, a senior government official said on Sunday.

A senior official said on condition of anonymity that the President will go to Beijing for the Olympic Games.

Chinese Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Wu Dawei, who is in Sri Lanka’s capital Colombo to attend the 15th SAARC (South Asian Association Regional Cooperation) Summit, told the President on Saturday that the Chinese Government welcomes his presence at the Beijing Olympics.

Wu also wished a success for Sri Lanka’s Olympic team in Beijing. Eight Sri Lankan athletes will compete in six sports in the 2008 Summer Olympics which will be held from Aug. 8 to Aug. 24 in Beijing.
