A 15-member senior Defense Delegation from Defense Services Command and Staff College of Sapugaskanda visited Republic of Korea for a two-week familiarization and educational program in early September 2019, which was coordinated and organized by the Embassy of Sri Lanka in the Republic of Korea in close association with the Ministry of National Defense of Korea.  The delegation consisted of faculty members of Sapugaskanda Staff College and senior Flag-level officers from the three Forces of Sri Lanka. The 15-member delegation was led by Group Captain N.H.N. Dias. This was the second occasion that a Defense delegation from Sri Lanka visited the Republic of Korea on a similar interactive program. 


The Defense delegation, consisting of guests, called on the Embassy of Sri Lanka in Seoul to be briefed of the current developments and dynamics in the region as well as in the world, as a segment of their familiarization and educational program. The Ambassador-designate of Sri Lanka, Dr. A. Saj U. Mendis, delivered a comprehensive lecture/briefing encompassing and delineating the current geo-political, geo-strategic and geo-economic developments in the world and the future global order to the Defense delegation.
