The scheduled visit of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) team to Colombo to prepare for its secretary-general’s visit has been postponed on account of the island’s presidential elections, according to sources from the Sri Lankan Embassy here. 

Secretary General of the OIC Iyad Ameen Madani was to visit Sri Lanka early next year on an invitation from the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa and an advance team of four members from the OIC was to visit the island in preparation for the secretary general’s visit.
This was the first time that arrangements for such a high-level visit from the OIC were announced six weeks ago, embassy sources said. 

The island’s ambassador, Mohammed Hussein Mohamed met Madani in Jeddah to discuss the program of the secretary-general’s visit to Colombo. 

The four-member delegation from the OIC was expected to chalk out the secretary-general’s program in coordination with the ministry of external affairs in Colombo.
