According to a statement issued by the Opposition Leader's Office, the UN Expert had also said the reconciliation among the different ethnicities and religious groups in the country was commendable.

The UN Expert, who undertook a visit to the North and East, also mentioned that the residents have said Mr. Rajapaksa's Government had contributed immensely to develop the infrastructure of the region.
