British Prime Minister David Cameron is to visit Sri Lanka mid next year, Foreign Ministry sources said on Saturday.

The British Prime Minister, during his visit, will largely focus on Sri Lanka’s measures towards adopting a credible mechanism to probe into alleged war crimes during the final phase of war in Sri Lanka, they said.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Cameron met President Maithripala Sirisena in Malta on the sidelines of the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting on Friday afternoon.

During the discussion, the British Prime Minister requested President Sirisena to take measures to ensure that the people – at large receive ‘dividends’ from the government’s measures towards accountability and reconciliation.

He also added that the British government would offer its fullest assistance to Sri Lanka in implementing such measures.
