Description: Vatican diplomacy is one of the world’s oldest diplomatic services, heading foreign relations of the Catholic church worldwide. The current foreign policy of Vatican diplomacy is directed towards the global South. In this context, the 1.2 million Catholics living in Sri Lanka have a major association with Catholics worldwide. Sri Lanka’s diplomatic relations with the Holy See, the headquarters of the Vatican for the 1.3 billion Catholics spread across the globe, goes beyond 42 years. This significant diplomatic link paved the way for the establishment of Sri Lanka’s strong relations with the Vatican while opening a new page in the country’s foreign policy, bringing it closer to western nations.
