Priyanka Chopra Jonas knows her style game, there is no one who can rock the saree better than the Desi Girl and there is no denying that. And the diva proved that once again by wearing the irreplaceable and evergreen six yards on the cover of InStyle magazine's July 2019 issue. The iconic diva served some desi vibes by showcasing some of the best sarees by iconic Indian designers. For one of the shoots, Priyanka wore a ruffled saree by ace-designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee paired with a bralette and the iconic Bengal tiger motif belt cinched on her waist.

Recently re-elected Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Sri Lanka on June 9th, Sunday, after making the first foreign visit of his second term to The Maldives during June 8-9. Modi's brief one-day stopover in Colombo at the invitation of President Maithripala Sirisena reflects the Delhi's 'neighbourhood first' policy, officials pointed out.

The Indian PM is due to arrive in Sri Lanka on his return flight from Male at around mid-day on Sunday and he will be given a ceremonial welcome at the Presidewntial Secretariat before holding high level talks. Discussions are expected to explore the outlook for Indo-Sri Lanka relations in the second term of Modi's BJP government now greatly strengthened by its enhanced parliamentary majority.

Sri Lanka's government will introduce laws to curb hate speech and false news that threaten ethnic reconciliation and national security, in the aftermath of Easter bombings that killed more than 250 people. The Cabinet decided to amend the penal code to include the penalty of five years in prison and a million rupee ($5,670) fine for those found guilty of distributing false news. The ministers, at their weekly meeting on Tuesday, also decided to take legal action against hate speech.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday reaffirmed his staunch denial that his government meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, adding that Moscow has no intention of interfering in any future votes, either. Russian leader said that "we didn't meddle, we aren't meddling and we will not meddle in any elections."

Putin and other Russian officials have hotly denied any interference with the U.S. vote to help Donald Trump win presidency, even though U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller has uncovered evidence of a Kremlin operation to interfere with the 2016 vote.

He charged 12 Russian military intelligence officers with breaking into Democratic Party emails, and also indicted other Russians who used phony social media accounts to spread divisive rhetoric and to undermine the U.S. political system.
