The US said today it was looking forward to the resumption of a more comprehensive military relationship no sooner the Sri Lankan Government makes progress towards reconciliation and accountability.
In a speech at the Harvard University in Boston on ‘U.S. Foreign Policy in South Asia: A Vision for Prosperity and Security’, South and Central Asian Affairs Bureau Assistant Secretary Nisha Biswal said the US continued to call for credible efforts to ensure accountability and justice in Sri Lanka.
“Sri Lanka has fortunately ended its civil war, though reconciliation has proved challenging. Following the March UN Human Rights Council resolution on Sri Lanka, we continue to call for credible efforts to ensure accountability and justice,” she added.
