The United States has said that the new Sri Lankan government has a very strong intent in addressing human rights concerns.
US Assistant secretary of state for South and Central Asia Nisha Biswal called for a "credible domestic" probe with "substantial involvement" from international community to address justice and accountability.
Indian media reports quoted the Top US official as saying that they have seen in the new government, what would be termed as a very strong intent.
She said that the government in the past nine months in office has done more to try to build trust and move the country towards a more inclusive society.
During her visit to Sri Lanka late last month, she said the US will move a pro-Sri Lanka resolution at the United Nations human rights council.
