Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon congratulated President Maithripala Sirisena, the government and the people of Sri Lanka on the first year of the country's political transition. He said he was encouraged by the government's commitment to a broad reform agenda that aims to realise durable peace, stability and prosperity for its citizens.

The Secretary-General acknowledged the steps the government had taken to strengthen good governance, promote reconciliation and implement the Resolution of the Human Rights Council of October 2015. He urged continued progress in these areas and stressed the need for inclusive consultation to address issues of transitional justice.

A statement released by the UN said the Secretary-General was supportive of the government's efforts to promote a nation-wide dialogue to achieve a long-term political settlement acceptable to all.

He welcomed the government's announcement to commence Constitutional Reforms. He called on all stakeholders to cooperate in a spirit of inclusion and good faith.
