The Core Group on Sri Lanka, comprising Canada, Germany, Macedonia, Montenegro and the UK would present a resolution on promoting reconciliation, accountability and human rights in Sri Lanka, UK Permanent Representative to the UN, Julian Braithwaite said.

In his statement to the Human Rights Council's organisational meeting, Mr. Braithwaite said the Core Group would be working in partnership with Sri Lanka and look to continue the cooperation which began in 2015.

“The Core Group will maintain engagement with the HR Council as Sri Lanka works towards the implementation of the commitments in HRC resolution 30/1. The draft text will be procedural in nature and seek to extend further the process established by the HRC in 2015. We will hold open informal negotiations in line with standard council practice and hope to have the full support of the council for the resolution once again,” he said.

Apart from the resolution on Sri Lanka, Mr. Braithwaite said the UK would be leading on resolutions for South Sudan and Syria as well at the Human Rights Council. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    So Braithwaite, when are you going to bring some resolutions WITH Saudi Arabia, USA etc. who are the worst HR violators in the world by a country mile..Or are you another poodle with the tail stuck in front of their money and power!

    They accuse Sri Lankan because they have some sort of evidence to support the allegation. If you have any valid evidence you can also charges against them.

    its time countries in asia and Africa pull out of UN and form their own asia-africa alliance. enough of ths europeans meddling in our affairs and dominating while protecting vested interests, human rights of american and European nations. there is no relevancy of commonwealth anymore - its just subtle domination of English speaking people. a separate body with head quarters is Singapore or some other country in asia. of course our colombons would be really upset over these types of developments as their masters have conditioned them to an extent irrevocable!

    I think Beijing is the ideal place for such head quarters.

    This government made a massive blunder by country sponsoring a resolution in 2015. It is actually a betrayal

    Why not bring all your war criminals on trial in Sri Lanka and punish them? Then would be no problems with the UN and other organizations.
