The US embassy in Colombo clarifying the statement made by Ambassador designate to Sri Lanka Michele J. Sison about Sri Lanka before the U.S. Congress, said the Ambassador’s statement reiterated long-standing US policy toward Sri Lanka, including calls for further demilitarization of the north.

Following is the full clarification sent by the United States embassy for Sri Lanka and Maldives
 
On June 6, Ambassador-designate Michele J. Sison testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee as part of her confirmation process as President Obama's nominee for Ambassador to Sri Lanka and Maldives.  

Her statement reiterated long-standing U.S. policy toward Sri Lanka, including calls for further demilitarization of the north, provincial council elections in the north, and mechanisms to deal with outstanding human rights issues.  

Ambassador-designate Sison’s testimony is in complete accordance with U.S policy as well as previous statements by U.S. officials and also reflects the issues discussed during Secretary Clinton's meeting with Minister of External Affairs Peiris last month in Washington. Her testimony also noted the need for a broad range of partnerships between the United States and Sri Lanka.

    There is no need for military in North and East of Sri Lanka. Let run civil administration to run freely.

    Demilitarization of the North, provincial council election in the North is internal matters which US has no Rights to intefer.Human rights issues they can go ahead. Anyway, until Trinco bay is into US hand, these US agenda will always be there whether Romney or Obama is in power.

    To Kondebandapucheena:
    Two wrongs does not equal a right. It is wrong to keep Gitmo open and it is wrong to maintain military installations in N Sri Lanka because post-war means the war is over so send the soldiers back to whatever they were doing 30 years ago--playing rugby and cricket for Army SC maybe.
