US State Secretary Michael Pompeo who met with Foreign Affairs Minister Tilak Marapana, has reiterated strong US support for Sri Lanka in its fight against terrorism, a statement said.

Minister Marapana was welcomed by Secretary Pompeo to the State Department on Thursday.

A statement issued by the US State Department’s Office of the Spokesperson said the Secretary also reiterated the US’ condemnation of the attacks that Sri Lanka suffered last month, which also killed five Americans.

Minister Marapana noted appreciation for US support in the aftermath of the bombings and conveyed Sri Lanka’s interest in deepening cooperation to prevent future attacks.  

Both welcomed the approval of a $480-million Millennium Challenge Corporation compact as an important development that will contribute to prosperity and economic sovereignty in Sri Lanka.  

Secretary Pompeo also welcomed Sri Lanka’s renewed commitments to accountability, justice, and reconciliation.
