US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Nisha Desai Biswal has said that the US would look towards working with Sri Lanka to implement the resolution which was Jointly Sponsored by the two countries at the UN Human Rights Council last year.

The US Assistant Secretary of State said that the relationship between the two countries have progressed steadily through the past few years and she credited the efforts of the Unity Government.

She further stated that Sri Lanka now has the opportunity to assume its rightful place as a leader in the international community, one that contributes to the global economy, promotes human rights, accountability, transitional justice, and democracy; and that helps to uphold international law.
