US Congress still interested in Sri – Lanka

usThe Congressional Caucus on Sri Lanka renewed its registration as a Congressional Member Organization of the 115th U.S. Congress.

The Caucus comprises House Representatives from both the Republican and Democratic parties. Former House Representative Chris Van Hollen was the democratic co-chair of the Caucus until his election to the Senate at the beginning of this year.
