The United Nations today praised the progress made by the Sri Lankan Government in resettling over 440,000 people since the end of the civil war three years ago, and called for continued donor support for the country, where many people still lack basic services.

Director of Operations of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, John Ging made this statement after concluding a 3 day visit to the island.

John Ging expressed his support for continued partnership with the authorities to jointly agree on and meet remaining humanitarian needs. He also welcomed the commitment of the Government to address peace and development issues through the country’s Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission.
