State department officials are unlikely to seek a meeting with President Mahinda Rajapaksa during his ongoing private visit to the US even though global rights groups have demanded that the Sri Lankan head of state be questioned on human rights.

Reports from Washington quoted US state department spokesperson, PJ Crowley has saying that no arrangement had been made for meeting with Rajapaksa.

Both the Sri Lankan government and the separatist LTTE have been accused of violating international humanitarian laws.
