The United States on Monday called on the Sri Lankan government to take advantage of the opportunity to expand efforts toward greater reconciliation by working with the newly elected Northern Provincial Council.

Issuing a statement the US Department of State said, “now that the people of Sri Lanka have chosen provincial councils to represent their interests, it is incumbent upon the Government of Sri Lanka to support the new civilian leadership of the provinces.”

It also congratulates the people of Sri Lanka on their successful elections in three provinces on September 21. These polls were a historic first for the Northern Province since the end of decades of civil war in 2009.

    Shehan, you have all the qualities to become a politician who do not want to solve this issue.

    Sri Lankan Government is always taking advantage on the situation. That is why they always create racial tension between the communities.

    Suq Madique Tuesday, 24 September 2013 09:35 AM

    The US would love if we were still at war so this false concern is really just a sham.

    Why are you all of a suddenly so cute.All these times USA has been critical of SL and please note the current regime and the president made it possible holding elections in the North and east after 30 years and the result was clearly shown in North the tamils selected TNA and it was fair to the fullest and where is your comments saying rigged,Military involved,Rajapaksa is authoritian and rigged the votes. Shut up your mouth now and levae SL alone. Tamil dispora now should clean toilets in the west not protesting.

    US should first ,investigate the malpractice they have done in middle east and killings of thousands of innocent civilians in IRAQ and Afgan

    Shehan Wednesday, 25 September 2013 01:36 AM

    If Tamils want peace and prosperity in Sri Lanka that is only through co existing with Sinhalese.... Bringing your international masters and kith and kin to intimidate Sinhalese will only make Tamils in Sri Lanka deprived of peace... Tamils are narrow minded, full of revenge and arogant where as Sinhalese forget the past and forgive... If you think it is a weakness you are simply mistaken... Your international orgasms only lead Sri Lanka to a state like Iraq... Sinhalese will still go to that state and will not bow down... If any one dream of Sudan style separation, that is when the last patriot is killed.

    USA helped us to get rid of floating armories of LTTE. They will now help us to get rid of floating thoughts of all Sri Lankans to "live happily ever after".

    chena Tuesday, 24 September 2013 11:07 AM

    Don't you understand because we(Tamils) have "No Hope" in this country.

    Rohan Wednesday, 25 September 2013 02:59 AM

    Are Ealam Tamils equal to Indian Tamils in the Central Province and other Tamils living in Western and Uva Province?

    Kumaraya Tuesday, 24 September 2013 11:15 AM

    unchikun Tuesday, 24 September 2013 08:02 AM

    In effect what Uncle Sam says is "not to mess around with the NPC". Well said.

    BuffaloaCitizen Wednesday, 25 September 2013 03:29 AM

    Good good, because all the patriots here are of the weerawansa type i.e. promising to fast unto death and then eating lemon puff on the sly.

    PERERA Tuesday, 24 September 2013 08:12 AM

    ok master

    BuffaloaCitizen Wednesday, 25 September 2013 03:30 AM

    The northern elections and the conduct of the same is not benevolence of the MR government nor the sinhalese, it has been forced upon by the international community.

    sach Wednesday, 25 September 2013 09:14 AM
