Britain said that it regularly discusses the situation in Sri Lanka at ministerial and official level with both the Sri Lankan Government and with other foreign Governments.

“We have had a number of meetings with the Sri Lankan Government since November 2013, including a meeting between the British High Commissioner to Sri Lanka and Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Peiris in December 2013,” Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office Hugo Swire said adding that “…Sri Lanka's High Commissioner to London was invited and attended the gathering of Commonwealth High Commissioners that I hosted at Lancaster House on 24 February 2014.”

In response to a question in UK’s Parliament on Wednesday, Swire also said that the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights has now called for an international investigation into allegations of violations and abuses of international human rights and humanitarian law on both sides during the civil war.
“We agree that, given the lack of a credible domestic accountability process to date, an independent international investigation is now needed. I set this out in my speech to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on 3 March. We are now working to achieve a UN Human Rights Council resolution which calls for an international investigation, in addition to addressing ongoing human rights concerns in Sri Lanka,” he added.

    People are using the word" Poms" without knowing the meaning of the word. Its meaning is: Prisoners of Mother England. So actually it should not English but Aussies. But Aussies also without knowing the correct meaning using it to English as derogatory way. Anyway coming back to the topic GOSL should curtail talks with barbarian country UK but only trade finance.

    By the way Saskia if you are in Canada whom you will support? Native aborigines or the invaders. If you are in US the native red Indians or the invaders. If you are in UK - Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and the natives of countries they ruled or the invaders. Please show the World that you are true HR supporter

    I see that Sinhalese are not happy with UK, may be this is time that all Sinhalese who are now living in UK should leave this country and go to China or Russia for their studies and job. Will they do it?

    POMS are the ones down under who support Sri Lanka's HR record. The ones on top are the Aristocrats.

    Certainly certainly we are not barbarians, we just play badminton in 1956, 1958, 1977, 1983 and then big match in 2009.
