Commonwealth Secretary General Kamalesh Sharma today said that the Commonwealth Organisation would continue to assist Sri Lanka in the implementation of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) recommendations.
Mr. Sharma expressed these views when he met President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the Temple Trees to brief the current Commonwealth Chair-in-Office on the ongoing work and progress of objectives agreed at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) 2013 held in Colombo last November.
Calling it a routine ‘health check’ of work resulting from a CHOGM, Mr. Sharma reported to President Rajapaksa that the check ‘was successful’
Regarding the initiatives taking place in Sri Lanka, Mr. Sharma informed President that the collaboration between the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Sri Lankan Human Rights Commission had been very productive.
External Affairs Minister G.L. Peiris and Ministry Secretary Kshenuka Senewiratne also attended the meeting.
