The United States today commended the people of Sri Lanka for restoring democratic institutions and combating corruption.
In a statement to the UN Human Rights Council at the 29th session in Geneva today, the US delegation urged the Sri Lankan Government to continue on its path of ensuring accountability and reconciliation.
The US delegation also said that it looks forward to reading the report on Sri Lanka by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in August.
The report is to be formally submitted to the UN Human Rights Council at the September session but will be made available to diplomatic missions in August. (Colombo Gazette)
