A top US State Department official is in the country to discuss the needs of the IDPs and is expected to visit the war torn north, the US Embassy in Colombo said today.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) of the U.S. Department of State, Kelly Clements is in the country to highlight the U.S. Government’s continued support for IDPs and returnees and is expected to visit Jaffna, Killinochchi and Mullaitivu to discuss the returnees' needs and their hopes for a better future.
