The United States today said that the Sri Lankan government has every right to be proud of its progress in resettlement.
 

“None of us can forget the enormous challenges that Sri Lanka faced at the end of the war and how far the country has come since then in meeting these overwhelming physical needs.  The Sri Lankan government has every right to be proud of its progress in resettlement and we are also proud to have contributed to this massive effort,” stated U.S. Ambassador Patricia A. Butenis.   
 

She was speaking at an event to announce a new donation from the USAID of $5.5 million (Rs. 610.5 million) of food aid to support the return of people displaced by the conflict in the North. Minister of Economic Development Basil Rajapaksa received the donation in Colombo today, the US embassy in Colombo announced.
