Pakistani Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani arrived in Sri Lanka last afternoon for a three-day visit.

General Kayani who arrived at the Katunayake Bandaranaike International Airport was accorded a warm welcome by army chief Lieutenant General Jagath Jayasuriya.

During his stay in Sri Lanka, General Kayani is scheduled to meet several political leaders, Defence Secretary and the tri-forces commanders.

General Kayani is scheduled to deliver an address to the undergraduates at Defence Services Command and Staff College (DSCSC) at Sapugaskanda.
