We support SL reconciliation - US


The US is supporting Sri Lanka's own process of reconciliation and accountability, the State Department said on Friday.

"We have made strong public statements and are supporting what Sri Lanka is doing. It's a process that is still ongoing," responding to a question at the daily press briefing, Assistant Secretary Philip J. Crowley told the reporters in Washington.

Crowley said the Lessons Learned and Reconciliation Commission appointed by President Rajapaksa has been receiving testimony from hundreds of people and the Commission is to present its report to the President in June.

"We've had no trouble communicating our views to the Government of Sri Lanka," Crowley said.
