British and French foreign ministers may make a joint visit to Sri Lanka, officials from the Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry said here Sunday.
The officials said that British Foreign Secretary David Miliband and French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner in a tripartite meeting with Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama in New York had expressed their wish for a return visit to Sri Lanka.
Miliband and Kouchner visited Sri Lanka in late April during the last stage of the government's military campaign against Tamil Tiger rebels.
Their call for a ceasefire for much criticism by the Sri Lankan government who accused both foreign ministers of trying to save the rebel leadership.
There were demonstration held in Colombo to protest the Miliband-Kouchner visit then.
Analysts say Miliband-Kouchner's proposed visit would be an addition to the international pressure being brought on Sri Lanka towards early re-settlement of the near 300,000 internally displace persons (IDP).
The Sri Lankan government has pledged to resettle most of the IDPs to their original places within six months starting in May.
