A bipartisan delegation from the US House of Representatives led by the Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Bob Goodlatte, together with US Ambassador to Sri Lanka, Atul Keshap, held discussions with Foreign Affairs Minister Mangala Samaraweera today.
The Ministry said the discussions were focused on issues of mutual interest.
Minister Samaraweera said it was a pleasure to welcome Bob Goodlatte and the House Judiciary delegation.
“It was a pleasure to welcome Goodlatte and House Judiciary delegation this morning and discuss issues of common interest for the US and Sri Lanka,” he tweeted.
