A Sri Lankan official today outlined that the Sri Lankan government and the United States are not at odds with each other.
A statement from Sri Lanka’s ambassador to the US, Jaliya Wickramasuriya, read,
“Now there is the perception that our two nations are at odds, with the introduction of a resolution before the UN human rights council urging Sri Lanka to implement the recommendations of our own LLRC report. We could not agree more on the importance of these measures to ensure that terrorism never again returns.”
“ Sri Lanka is moving in the right direction in the interest of our citizens, and we are keen to broaden our bilateral relationship with the US. We need to re-chart the conversation beyond humanitarian and political reforms.”
