Foreign Minister Julie Bishop on Friday said that Sri Lanka was a close friend to Australia, and that the government would have no hesitation in sending assistance to help with the clean-up or to help resettle those who have lost their homes.

The government of France extended condolences to the families of the landslide victims in Sri Lanka and offered support to Sri Lanka government and the people.

Meanwhile, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko also expressed condolences to President Maithripala Sirisena.
