I met with Foreign Minister Marapana on 5 October 2017 during a visit to Colombo and Jaffna. We discussed in detail the importance of the Sri Lankan government implementing in full its commitments under UN Human Rights Council Resolution 34/1, including meaningful devolution through constitutional reform and the need for more progress on transitional justice commitments. The visit also reaffirmed the close bilateral relationship with Sri Lanka; the forthcoming Commonwealth Summit; and the importance of prosperity and regional security.
