​I am deeply concerned by the recent inter-communal violence in Sri Lanka and I wrote to Foreign Minister Marapana on 7 March setting out the British Government's views. We support the Government of Sri Lanka's action in swiftly bringing the violence to an to end and urge it to hold the perpetrators to account. It is vital that all leaders in Sri Lanka condemn violence and hate, and make every effort to promote harmony.
