When my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary met the Sri Lankan Foreign Minister in November 2007, at the Commonwealth Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in Kampala, he reiterated our view that respect for human rights and democracy would help ensure a strong Sri Lanka and that we stood ready to support a process of reconciliation.
My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary has no current plans to meet representatives of the Sri Lankan Government. Foreign and Commonwealth Office officials here and in Colombo remain in regular contact with Sri Lankan Government representatives.
