US asserts no issue with Sri Lanka despite incidents

By Easwaran Rutnam

The United States (US) today asserted that there was no issue in the relationship between Sri Lanka and the US despite some recent incidents.

The US Ambassador to Sri Lanka, Alaina B. Teplitz said that the “misinformation” with regards to the US Embassy employee who arrived in Sri Lanka and the Police crackdown on a scheduled demonstration which was to be staged near the US Embassy in Colombo, had not hurt the relationship between Sri Lanka and the US.

In an online discussion with a group of journalists today (Monday), the Ambassador said that some statements reported in the media with regards to the US Embassy employee were misleading.
