UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Sri Lanka, Neil Buhne, will conclude his visit to New York this week and return to Colombo with a message to the Sri Lankan government from UN Secretary General Ban ki-moon, a UN spokesman said.

Addressing reporters in New York today UN Associate spokesman Farhan Haq said that Buhne will convey the Secretary-General’s strong expectations for a better treatment of the UN family in Sri Lanka, as well as for progress on the range of commitments covered in the Joint Statement of May 2009 including resettlement of internally displaced persons, political reconciliation and accountability. 

Asked why Buhne was returning to Sri Lanka after being recalled last week, Haq noted the changing circumstances in the country, which had allowed UN staff to return to work without the hindrance that they had faced earlier.

    Hema Saturday, 17 July 2010 06:25 AM

    What warped minds do these COLOMBIANS have. What pervert satisfaction they get by running down the country they live in. ANIMALS?

    Dissaa Saturday, 17 July 2010 06:34 AM

    Its not clear the destination of this matter. Sure WW will have to plan his second round of fast unto death!!!

    Dhamsen Saturday, 17 July 2010 07:31 AM

    The joint statement was quoted several times in News papers.It has never allowed the UNSG to appoint such a Panel

    Malinda Seneviratne Saturday, 17 July 2010 07:59 AM

    that's public knowledge. go look.....without being lazy! :)

    Malinda Seneviratne Saturday, 17 July 2010 08:00 AM

    the ignorance here is baffling......Shovini, Ki-moon has clearly clarified the mandate of the panel...ADVISORY and NOT 'investigative', regardless of there being a 'plan' to investigate or not.
