Shannon will visit Sri Lanka in November 2017 to take part in the next round of the US/Sri Lanka Partnership Dialogue, which was inaugurated in 2016 when Samaraweera was the Foreign Affairs Minister, for a regular policy consultation designed to discuss and identify opportunities for cooperation across the full range of bilateral and
