The United States says assistance provided to Sri Lanka to probe the Easter Sunday attacks is only specific to the incident.
The US Embassy in Colombo said in a statement today that following the tragic Easter Sunday attacks, President Donald Trump immediately extended an offer of comprehensive support to Sri Lanka to support investigation and recovery efforts.
The Sri Lankan Government accepted this offer and U.S. teams are already working closely with their Sri Lankan partners on efforts including explosives detection, crime scene investigation, and forensics analysis.
The Embassy said that all activities are at the request of and closely coordinated with Sri Lankan authorities.
The cooperation is short term, temporary, and specific to the recent attacks and bringing the perpetrators to justice. (Colombo Gazette)
