US State Secretary to visit SL

United States’ Secretary of State Michael R.Pompeo is due to visit Sri Lanka in his forthcoming swing through Asia later this month. Pompeo is scheduled to visit India, Sri Lanka, Japan and South Korea during his Asian tour from June 24 to 30, US State Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus told a press briefing in Washington, DC. on Monday.

The visit by the US Secretary of State, known to be a personality close to President Donald Trump, is to “express America’s solidarity with the people of Sri Lanka” after Easter Sunday bomb attacks, Ortega said. She said that the US State Secretary (US’ foreign affairs minister) would discuss with the Sri Lankan authorities about “promising opportunities for US-Sri Lanka co-operation based on shared commitments to a free and open Indo-Pacific region”.
