India books rooms for CHOGM

2013 Oct 21

India has booked rooms for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) summit in Colombo, an External Affairs Ministry official said.

The official however said that while the rooms have been booked at a Colombo hotel it is still not clear who will be in the full Indian delegation.

Indian External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid has confirmed he will be attending the summit, the official said but there is still no confirmation if Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will lead the Indian delegation.

Last week there were reports that the Indian Vice President may replace Singh at the summit but the Sri Lankan External Affairs Ministry official said that so far India has not officially communicated to Sri Lanka if Singh will attend the summit or not. (Colombo Gazette)
