Japanese FM pledges ‘fullest support for reconciliation’ in Sri Lanka

Japan’s Foreign Minister Tharo Kono reportedly pledged his government’s “fullest support for the development and reconciliation process of Sri Lanka” in a visit to Colombo today.

Sri Lanka’s President’s Media Division reported that Mr Kono said there was “an excellent trade relationship between the two countries” and would be sending a delegation to discuss business opportunities to the island at the end of this month.

Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena thanked Japan for the ”continuous support given to Sri Lanka as a true friend... as well as internationally during the past conflict period”.
