The United Nations says the Secretary General will stand by the UN Human Rights Council Chief's call for cooperation of the Sri Lankan government with the UN inquiry.

While welcoming the new Sri Lankan government's decision to initiate a local probe into alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric at the regular Press briefing said the UN Chief's call and the UNHR Chief's call for Sri Lanka to cooperate with the UN inquiry will stand.

Meanwhile, The United States pledged to assist Sri Lanka's new government in creating a more open and democratic society.

In a speech laying out President Barack Obama's updated national security strategy, U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice included Sri Lanka alongside Myanmar and Tunisia as a country "in transition."
