|Calvin S||Thanks. Will check with Agent.|

There's a good answer.
Ours that have hydraulic power steering recommended this fluid for it (Ford's current ATF), so it's a good guess they followed this spec. everywhere.
Many don't notice location, and some believe the "World Car" advertising means it's the SAME everywhere - it's still good to check for that bottle since the question HAS come from those with electric steering as well! (They wanted to know what to use in advance of checking fluid levels, if they'd looked the question would have been "where is the reservoir" (grin))

Its not listed in the UK ford owners guide even though they also have that 1.6L engine as a low level or base that was being replaced with the 1.0L EcoBoost i3.
However usually you can use either a dedicated power steering fluid, or some automatic transmission fluid like the following:
If your car is losing fluid so early in its life is this a concern for the Warranty, or is there not one that is very good there in Sri Lanka?

You should contact the dealer.
A quick Google search shows that the Focus available in your area with your specific engine may not have the electric steering assist. Since that vast majority of MK3 Foci do have this, you probably won't get an answer quick here.
Likewise, it very well may be in your owners manual.

|Calvin S||The reservoir cap clearly says 'power steering' and has the steering wheel symbol on it. Don't think it gets clearer than that.|

My car does contain a reservoir for power steering fluid. What is the power steering fluid I should use?

He's right, if there's not a reservoir for PS fluid under the hood, then there's no worries. The reservoir would be visible and marked with a pictograph- usually a steering wheel.
I think all Focis are now electric assist.
