President Rajapaksa outlined the developments that have taken place, including the near-completion of all de-mining activities, the improvement of health services, and the rehabilitation and reintegration of ex-combatants, among others achievements.

The President also informed the Secretary-General of the rehabilitation of schools that the Government had undertaken in the war-affected areas.
Sec-Gen Ban also underscored the need for wider political consultation for a successful political process. In this regard, he noted that all political parties must engage.

President Rajapaksa invited Mr. Ban to make another visit to Sri Lanka to assess the development since his last visit.
