Govt. disappointed over US stance
The government is disappointed with the US stance that it will support a resolution at the forthcoming UN Human Rights Council (UNHCR) session in Geneva against Sri Lanka, External Affairs Ministry Secretary K. Amunugama has said yesterday. “We are disappointed with the US position. We have explained that the Sri Lankan government cannot rush to implement the LLRC recommendations. The report is not government owned; it was produced by an independent commission. As a democratic country, a wide range of consultations need to be held before its recommendations can be implemented,” Amunugama said.
“The government is currently studying the recommendations and is considering how best to implement them.
