The United States has commended the Sir Lankan government’s efforts in resettling those internally displaced by the fighting in the country.

US Ambassador in Colombo Patricia Butenis has said in a statement, “I commend the Government’s efforts in resettling most of those who were internally displaced by the fighting.”

Butenis also praised the Sri Lanka Army and the local and foreign NGOs for successful de-mining operations in the country.

She has said “due to the heroic efforts of the Sri Lankan Army and Sri Lankan and international de-mining organizations, large swaths of the North and East are now cleared of mines. However, much work still remains and our continuing support will enable the process to be completed more quickly.”
