US commends fight against corruption in Lanka

The United States called on Sri Lanka to “continue on its path of ensuring accountability and reconciliation” in a statement delivered to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva. In an opening statement delivered on Monday, the US said “we commend the people of Sri Lanka for restoring democratic institutions and combatting corruption”.


The statement went on to add that “we look forward to reading the OHCHR’s report on Sri Lanka in August”. The report, which was delayed from being released in March, is set to detail alleged violations of international humanitarian law committed during the final phase of the armed conflict.


“We look forward to continuing to work closely with the High Commissioner on these issues, among many others,” said the US.
