Apr 22, Washington, DC: U.S. President Donald Trump Monday called Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe this morning to express condolences to the people of Sri Lanka for the Easter day terrorist attacks that killed nearly 300 and wounded hundreds of others.

The near simultaneous attacks on Sri Lankan churches and hotels constitute one of the deadliest terrorist events since the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

Prime Minister Wickremesinghe expressed appreciation for the President Trump's concern and updated him on the progress of the investigation into the attacks.

President Trump pledged United States support to Sri Lanka in bringing the perpetrators to justice, and the leaders re-affirmed their commitment to the fight against global terrorism (White House Pool Report).
