The US will help Sri Lanka's new government to restore democracy and heal "fragile ethnic tensions", a senior American official said on Tuesday.

Addressing a two-day seminar in Kolkata, India, US Department of State Regional Affairs' deputy director Neil Kromash said: "Positive developments have taken place in Sri Lanka where the January elections brought a new government, overthrowing a longstanding autocratic regime.

"The US will do all it can to support the new government in restoring democracy and heal fragile ethnic tensions," he said.

Maithripala Sirisena became Sri Lanka's new president in January after defeating Mahinda Rajapaksa.(IANS)

    A world wide census of Sri Lankans should be carried out with foriegn help to our specifications. Movement of people should be compiled over a period of time. People of organizations for radical groups should be tracked down.

    There is no such a tension or lack of democracy. Tension is created by outsiders. We can peacefully live with all ethnic and religious groups without foreign lectures.
