U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said that the United States wants to renew ties with Sri Lanka and urged its new government to work with the United Nations.

Kerry announced the start of an annual bilateral dialogue and said the United States would immediately send experts to advise the new government on economic growth, trade and investment.

Kerry said that no country in the world saw 100% fulfilment of human rights.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry also met President Maithripala Sirisena and later Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

During a news conference Kerry said the United States was not seeking to meddle in Sri Lanka's internal affairs.

He did not mention China by name but said he had reiterated during his meeting on Saturday that the United States was not asking Sri Lanka to align with any one country.
