SECRETARY KERRY: Very happy to meet with President Sirisena, and it’s the second time at UNGA we’ve been able to meet. And we’re very encouraged by the steps that the president is taking and Sri Lanka is taking with respect to reconciliation, and they’re also making important economic reforms. So the story of Sri Lanka is a great one and we’re really happy to be able to meet. Thank you.
