The United States yesterday said that its relations with Sri Lanka had reached a historic high and it would work together with the island nation to restore Sri Lanka’s rightful place as a democratic and peaceful nation.
In a US Independence Day message released by the US ambassador to Sri Lanka, Atul Keshap, he said that the United States had always stood with the people of Sri Lanka and it would work with the government to make the island a strong contributor to global prosperity and stability.
“We applaud the dramatic transformation made possible by Sri Lankan voters, and we appreciate the government’s efforts to uphold and protect fundamental freedoms,” the ambassador said.
“We support efforts to promote needed constitutional reform and national reconciliation so that all Sri Lankans can enjoy equal rights, equal opportunities, and the full benefits of post-conflict development and prosperity, regardless of their ethnicity or place of birth.”
