Eleven US Senators on Thursday tabled a resolution urging the ‘US and the international community to assist Sri Lanka in establishing domestic mechanisms to deal with any grievances arising from actions committed by both sides during and after the civil war in Sri Lanka.’

The resolution urged the US Government and the international community to assist the Sri Lankan Government to set up such domestic mechanisms with due regard to its sovereignty, stability, and security.

It has also urged  the US President to develop a comprehensive and well balanced policy towards Sri Lanka that reflects United States interests, including respect for human rights, democracy, and the rule of law, as well as economic and security interests.

The resolution urges the Sri Lankan Government to improve religious and media freedoms and to bring to justice those responsible for attacks on journalists and newspaper offices as well as places of worship, regardless of religion.

    Tamil diaspora poured money to LTTE's war for 30 years. They knew LTTE used children of poor Tamil civilians in Still Lanka as child soldiers. They knew LTTE invented suicide bombers and exploded both innocent Tamil and Sinhalese civilians in to pieces in every part of Sri Lanka. Yet they stated blind eye to all those LTTE atrocities they sponsored. Now they want an international inquiry to see how Tamil civilians die during the last few months of the war. They knew LTTE was killing Tamil civilians for 30 years using their money. What kind of funny people they are? via DM Android App

    At last someone is talking of assisting the process instead of confrontational tactics and interference. This will work.

    At least some of the US Senators could not be bought over by the LTTE Rump diaspora residing in the USA.
