US State Secretary Michael R. Pompeo said he is looking forward to deepening bilateral ties with Sri Lanka in the year ahead and working together toward a bright future for both countries.

He said this in a statement issued on Monday on Sri Lanka’s Independence Day.

Mr. Pompeo said, “On behalf of the people of the United States, I send my best wishes to Sri Lanka as you celebrate the 72nd anniversary of your independence on February 4.

Our relationship is based on common democratic values, and the United States steadfastly supports Sri Lanka’s vibrant democracy and its sovereignty.  

We share a commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific region that ensures peace, economic growth, security, democracy, and human rights for the advancement of our peoples.

As a close friend and partner, the United States congratulates you on Sri Lanka’s Independence Day, and I extend my warmest wishes for peace and prosperity in the coming year.”

    Pompeo is the grandson of a Poor Italian who fled to America to escape the poverty in Italy. This is the story of all white Americans.

    Fat hopes, keep dreaming....your Jan'15 agenda is a total flop. Go back to drawing boards or ask China how to win back SL's confidence

    He is concerned as he sees SL is leaning towards China, India, and Russia.

    Sri Lanka already fall to the U.S. trap. Just eye wash on national day.
