An official statement from Washington has confirmed that US Secretary of State John Kerry will be visiting the country on May 2.

The State Department release makes a special mention that Kerry will be joining leaders in the country to celebrate Vesak.

More importantly, it adds that his visit will focus on emphasising his previously mentioned support for a more peaceful, stable and prosperous future for Sri Lanka.

His visit marks the first time that a Secretary of State has visited the country since 2005.
