Sri Lanka which had only nine votes by last Tuesday against the US sponsored resolution on Sri Lanka at the UNHRC session in Geneva, had managed to increase it to 17 by this morning after a vigorous lobbying campaign by China, informed sources in Geneva told Daily Mirror online. United States is assured of 24 votes. The vote is scheduled to take place at 2.30 pm (SL time) today.

 The draft resolution on Sri Lanka was tabled at the 19th session of the UNHRC in Geneva on March 8.

    It's no harm not like US. US always promote terrorism but telling other things. But China help us when ever needed.

    What's the Hindi movie tonight?

    kumar Thursday, 22 March 2012 08:19 AM

    Why cant the SL government ask for a time frame to accomplish what they have pointed out in their own LLRC report. Wouldnt that put a full stop to all this?

    ifthi Thursday, 22 March 2012 08:37 AM

    god help us

    justice must prevail for those who lost loved ones !

    yadav Thursday, 22 March 2012 06:39 AM

    Yes justice for those killed in kashmir and Sri Lanka by the Indian soldiers.

    Way to go China, saviour of the nations bullied by India

    Weha Thursday, 22 March 2012 06:36 AM

    It's time for all parties to put all differences aside and try to rebuild the country in a sincere manner. none of this will bring the dead back. all we can do is try to prevent such things from happening in the future.

    manjula Thursday, 22 March 2012 06:39 AM

    Yes, but not only for Tamils but also for innocent Singhalese who were killed by brutal LTTE

    Oyage sudu kella Thursday, 22 March 2012 06:57 AM

    Whatever happens today will happen as per God's wish (only).

    Gamini Udagepola Thursday, 22 March 2012 06:46 AM

    China as emerging world Super Power is doing the right thing here, good luck!. (Asia is not America as India thinks now)

    Guru Thursday, 22 March 2012 06:50 AM

    The verdict is by GOD.

    Hafshaq Thursday, 22 March 2012 06:41 AM

    Ok then we have Bruce Lee on our side lets kick*** chuck norris and his compatriots out. Enter the Dragon ;)

    lasantha Thursday, 22 March 2012 12:17 PM

    Since 1977???? Even 4000 years ago they did the same. Remember rama and the gang. You can see enough evidence of what they have done in Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa..... We built and they destroyed . That has been the story and will continue to be so.

    Laughing bhudda Thursday, 22 March 2012 06:46 AM

    you dragon will be kicked out be great Tigers.

    KP Thursday, 22 March 2012 12:10 PM

    Wonder is those patriots who remember all the atrocities done by LTTE have forgotten who SF is.

    lucifer Thursday, 22 March 2012 06:56 AM

    Dragon already started to play.... SL is the play ground.... Soon SL will be a state of China same as Tibet...

    balu Thursday, 22 March 2012 06:47 AM

    manjula i agree with you 200%. justice should be both ways

    tin Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:20 AM

    Shame on you India.

    manoj Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:24 AM

    US will win but still 17-24 is not bad for a small nation like Sri Lanka especially after big bully India which nurtured LTTE for two decades let us down last minute.

    Thank you China

    ismeth Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:16 AM

    The new world order - US and India on one side and China on the other.

    Given china's economic might it can easily by over both US and India.

    Weha Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:11 AM

    And in other news - Looks like we are going to have Chinese for all 3 meals in the near future

    Siribiris Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:36 AM

    Thank You CHINA..... india you will always be simple letters in this part of the world.

    slindimasq Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:40 AM

    thank you china!!! a freind in need is a friend in deed

    dimuth Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:32 AM

    Please give KKS air strip, Sampoor power plant and our fuel tanks robbed by IOC to China. Never trust the Indians here after. They are very likely to blackmail us by staging a strike by IOC.

    Take back what we have given the big bully. No wonder India has made enemies of all its neighbours.

    Thank you China and wen jiabao

    Fusion Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:37 AM

    Total members 47, so its game over. If the US has 24 assured, then they have a majority. No amount of lobbying matters... I just hope this wont push President to be even more dictatorial since he is getting cornered.

    Mifaz Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:39 AM

    That is also from a foreign aid

    mohan Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:51 AM

    agree , and justice must prevail to innocent poeple (both tamils and Singhalese ) who killed

    al Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:52 AM

    God bless sri lanka!

    Mohamed Marzooik Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:56 AM

    Adoption of the US Resolution will bring pressure on the SL Govt. and also the other political stake holders to make SL move towards a law abiding and peaceful country as envisaged in the LLRC Recommendations. That will pave the way for all the people of bringing justice for all the people, including the Sinhalese, are now the target of oppression.

    hb Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:41 AM

    well it tastes better than chapathi

    Jayanthan Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:51 AM

    Most of the Sri Lankans have now forgotten that how we lived when the LTTE was spreading it's terrorist arms to all parts of the Island.
    Now we Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims live in peace.
    War is brutal whether it's first stage or final stage. Now we want is to build this nation.
    So need everyones support instead of healing the wounds

    buffaloa citizen Thursday, 22 March 2012 08:03 AM

    A simple thank you is not enough for China, this will have to be reimbursed with our soveriegnity. We already have a 24 hour Chinese radio station and TV station and that in a country without even a china town.

    manmohan Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:47 AM

    Doesn't matter losing decently after the cross over by dirty India.

    Never trust the Indians again.

    Please don't give Indians visa on arrival hereafter. We are asked to apply for visa for India and selfish Indians are allowed to get theirs on arrival. here.
    What justice is that?

    Sidath B Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:53 AM

    Thank you China.

    At least this should open Sri Lanka's eyes that India has been bully as it used to be since 1977.
    Exttremely dangerous to trust a nation like India for anything - Economics or politics

    sltk2004 Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:53 AM

    I think the reason why China is supporting us is because they are worried that if something happens to us, they will not be able to recover the loans given to us.

    kappa Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:54 AM

    Damn we need 4 more votes!!!

    Gayan Samarasekara Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:55 AM

    And Sovereignty should be ensured.

    kondebendapucheena Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:57 AM

    It is Our Motherland these people playing there politics ,it is not all about human rights it is balance of POWER between US and China we are in the middle ,India of course gave in to TN politics

    Ha-Ha Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:58 AM

    They betrayed Rajiv Ghandi ..
    Shame on you india

    Kadupul Dharmapala Thursday, 22 March 2012 08:01 AM

    It is better to be a Tibet rather than a Bhutan!

    sudath Thursday, 22 March 2012 07:55 AM

    God bless Srl Lanka...

    achtung Thursday, 22 March 2012 08:14 AM
