The United States (USA) says it sees hope and promise in countries such as Sri Lanka and Burma.

Deputy Secretary of the Human Right Council Antony Blinken in his national statement in Geneva said the US has seen the hope and promise of nations, like Sri Lanka and Burma, taking stock of the aspirations of citizens and setting out on a new journey to meet those aspirations.

Blinken said while we celebrate and support their progress, the US believes it is important for the Council to remain engaged, as the governments confront their legacies of alleged human rights violations and address the challenges that remain.
