The United States has said that they have ‘high expectations’ for the forthcoming LLRC report, which is due to be handed over to Sri Lankan President mahinda Rajapakse later this week.
Speaking in a daily press briefing, State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland commented on the TNA’s visit to Washington last week where they met with Under Secretary of State Sherman saying,
“Under Secretary Sherman’s main point was that we have high expectations for the Lessons Learned and Reconciliation Commission report which is due later in the month – not only that the report will be of highest quality, but that the Sri Lankan Government will take steps to implement it.
So that was the main message that we were giving, and we look forward to seeing that report.”
