Parliamentary Elections in Sri Lanka: Statement made by the spokesperson of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development [fr]

France welcomes the smooth running of the parliamentary elections in Sri Lanka, which saw high turnout amongst the population.

This poll marked one more step forward towards strengthening democracy. We hope it will also help continue the action taken since the election of President Maithripala Sirisena in support of human rights and inter-community reconciliation.

France stands alongside the Sri Lankan authorities and people in this process and intends to work with the new government to strengthen our bilateral relations.
