June 11, Colombo: The U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will visit Sri Lanka later this month, the State Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus announced.

Secretary Pompeo will travel to the Indo-Pacific region on June 24th through the 30th to "broaden and deepen our partnership with key countries to advance our shared goal of a free and open Indo-Pacific," Ms. Ortagus told reporters at the press briefing on Monday.

The Secretary's first stop will be in New Delhi, India following which he will visit Colombo.

"In Sri Lanka, Secretary Pompeo will express America's solidarity with the people of Sri Lanka as they stand united against the despicable Easter Sunday terrorist attacks," Spokesperson said.

Secretary Pompeo will also discuss promising opportunities for U.S.-Sri Lanka cooperation based on shared commitments to a free and open Indo-Pacific region.

In India, the Secretary will preview elements of a cooperative agenda during his remarks at the U.S.-India Business Council India Ideas Summit at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on June 12th.

"Prime Minister Modi's recent election victory provides an excellent opportunity for him to implement his vision for a strong and prosperous India that plays a leading role on the global stage," Ortagus said.

After Sri Lanka, the Secretary will travel to Osaka, Japan to participate in the G20 Leaders' Summit from June 28th to 29th.
