David McKinnon, the High Commissioner of Canada to Sri Lanka, in a statement to mark Canada Day today, said that Canada believes that strengthening inclusion, reconciliation and the rule of law is in the interests of all Sri Lankans.

“We are encouraged by the initial steps taken to operationalize the Office of Missing Persons, and we continue to call on Sri Lanka to fully implement the commitments made to its own people, including through Human Rights Council resolution 30/1, to ensure a peaceful, reconciled, inclusive and prosperous Sri Lanka,” he said.

He also said that Sri Lanka has taken important steps to re-engage the international community and global institutions, and to expanding and diversifying its trade ties and sources of investment.

Canada strongly encourages Sri Lanka and its people to continue on this path. As a longstanding partner, we will assist where we can.
