The United States today reiterated it would support a credible domestic process for justice and reconciliation in Sri Lanka in cooperation with the UN and with international support.

“The United States’ support for a credible domestic process for justice and reconciliation in Sri Lanka -- one that is led and owned by the Sri Lankan people and is conducted in cooperation with the UN and with international support,” Secretary of State John Kerry said during a meeting with visiting President Maithripala Sirisena in New York

The US embassy in Colombo said that their discussion built on the meetings the Secretary had during his visit to Colombo in May.
“The Secretary commended the bold steps taken by the new Sri Lankan government to restore democratic freedoms at home and to renew its engagements with the United Nations and other key partners abroad.”
“The Secretary and President Sirisena also discussed ways in which the United States can support Sri Lanka in pursuing clean energy initiatives, improving cooperation on climate change efforts in the run-up to the COP 21 meeting in Paris, and working toward open government goals,” the statement added.

    As a spineless shameful nation, we the Sri Lankans would like to get ourselves probed by US, UN, EU and the rest.
