The United States commended Sri Lanka for the measures taken in compliance with the UN resolution to address the human rights and accountability issues during the last phase of the war.

The United States Assistant Secretary for South Asian Affairs Nisha Biswal said Sri Lanka has been on a remarkable trajectory of addressing not only the internal issues that have challenged it, but also engaging with the broader international community in a spirit of partnership and dialogue.

The Assistant Secretary recalling that the U.S. has been a partner with Sri Lanka over the past 60 years, assured that the superpower will continue to make substantial investments in multiple sectors – such as agriculture, enterprise development, education, health care, energy and natural resources, and humanitarian activities.

She said the U.S. will continue to support the Government of Sri Lanka as it takes "meaningful and concrete" steps in response to concerns of its people related to democratic governance and advancing respect for human rights, for reconciliation, for justice and accountability.

Speaking at the same media conference Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor Tom Malinowski commended the "very concrete steps" the Sri Lankan government has taken forward in its reform, democratization, and reconciliation agenda.
