Calls on all parties to negotiate in good faith with a view to finding a just and lasting political settlement to Sri Lanka's ethnic conflict while respecting Sri Lanka's territorial integrity.

States the willingness of the Senate in principle to see the United States lend its good offices to play a constructive role in supporting the peace process, if so desired by all parties to the conflict.

Calls on members of the international community to use their good offices to support the peace process and, as appropriate, lend assistance to the reconstruction of war-damaged areas of Sri Lanka and to reconciliation among all parties to the conflict.
