The European Union today decided to support the US sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka at the forthcoming UN Human Rights Council session in Geneva, an official document said.
 
The document, which was adopted by the EU foreign ministers in Brussels on Monday, reads that, “the EU will also support efforts aimed at keeping the issues of accountability and reconciliation as well as the current human rights situation in Sri Lanka on the agenda of the Human Rights Council.”
 
The Council's conclusions stress the importance of addressing key human rights concerns in Syria, Mali, Myanmar, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eritrea, Sudan and South Sudan.

    After consuming bala(no tuna) maalu, Jayalath is trying to control meteor. Best of luck to the patriot

    Yeah, they should do something as revenge for the death of their good friend Prabakaran.

    Whatever the fake "super patriots" may say, it is obvious to what extent we have alienated the world community with the loose talk and false bravado of politicians who suffer from verbal diahorrea. It is a real shame that Sri Lanka is grouped together with countries such as Syria, Mali, Myanmar, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eritrea, Sudan and South Sudan. What an achievement by the Chinthana masters who still talk talk of making the country a Miracle of Asia.

    I think you'll find it is a resolution for upholding Sri Lankan law and constitution and its international obligations and NOT against Sri Lanka. It seems from the church people of the North and East it is for Sri Lankans and not against them. via DM Android App

    GOBI Tuesday, 19 February 2013 07:22 AM

    Good news for Sri Lankans to get rid of barbaric regime in the world.
    Sri Lankan should use this oppotunity to bring back democracy and human rights by avoiding mass killers.

    edward Tuesday, 19 February 2013 04:25 AM

    This is good news for all sri lankan as we read lot of bad situations i thanks to Daily Mirror for updates . those problems are not resolved there are politician behind for it read this "as well as the current human rights situation in Sri Lanka " its good move will give real democracy in Sri Lanka.

    dishanthi Tuesday, 19 February 2013 04:36 AM

    How about inquiring into the recent human rights violations in Libya, Egypt, Drone attacks on civilians in Pakistan, torture in Guantanamo bay or even going back in time, Vietnam ? How about human rights violations in all the middle eastern countries where there is absolutely no freedom to practice the religion of your choice ? Or is investigating " human rights violations" limited to beating up countries without sufficient political clout or natural resources ( like petroleum) ?

    Hifra Tuesday, 19 February 2013 04:40 AM

    coming colors no good.

    jayanath Tuesday, 19 February 2013 04:37 AM

    EU jointly with US doing it. while they mess up human rights of many people/nations in the past and now and continuing. A meteor shall stop it soon I guess.

    ling Tuesday, 19 February 2013 04:43 AM

    MountainLion Tuesday, 19 February 2013 05:03 AM

    A typical comment from a blind "so called patriot". Start from your own backyard first.

    Real Peace Tuesday, 19 February 2013 07:55 AM

    The govt is likely to run into many, many difficulties this year. We should not have come to this stage in the first place.

    piumi Tuesday, 19 February 2013 07:54 AM

    This is a good opportunity to bring back the democracy. Mahinda is going in a wrong direction.

    Now only pending is Middleas Countries, by next week they also will support against Sri Lanka for sure! Balu Sana is Destroying our Country, my Dear Sinhala Brothers please wake up, you have right to think about your religion as well as our Country’s and Pease!!

    Lanke Banda Tuesday, 19 February 2013 08:08 AM

    By the Likes on comments notice Anti Lankans are more in no's. They should be banished from here to Whites man Land.

    Libra Tuesday, 19 February 2013 05:23 AM

    What's new in this? EU is in chaotic state of affairs. Their estimated GDP is 0.5% so need to lick the boots of US for survival. Double standard bastxxrds. They are utterly pathetic!!!

    ramuk Tuesday, 19 February 2013 08:05 AM

    not sure mate note sure ...killing Praba is the right thing but not his 12 yrs son.....thats y

    Anil Tuesday, 19 February 2013 05:30 AM

    If Praba has been allowed to kill freely, these hypocratics would have been very comfortable with the HR in SL.

    Ryan Tuesday, 19 February 2013 05:27 AM

    Can we use this as tourist attraction?

    Ryan Tuesday, 19 February 2013 05:31 AM

    Sometimes tourists love to visit challenging environments, OK.

    AMT Tuesday, 19 February 2013 04:54 PM

    Diaspora must have given money to EU much more than the GOSL gave to Potinger the PR firm arranged by CEO of CB??

    Karunka Tuesday, 19 February 2013 05:28 AM

    Western is always western and ever since think keep depressed the countries other than EU, their colonies and USA. Sad is that some Asians who comment here have no brains but they are cowered before white.

    Kodithuwakkuarachchi Tuesday, 19 February 2013 08:15 AM

    Dish you are pointing one finger at the others while the rest of the 4 fingers are pointing at you.

    Just because there are human rights violations elsewhere it does not mean you too should go violating human rights.

    Remember t wrongs does not make one right.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Wednesday, 20 February 2013 07:35 AM

    Dishanthi, pathetic comments indeed. Just by harping on the other fellows' crimes, does not absole one of his own crimes.

    Ramzeel Tuesday, 19 February 2013 05:29 AM

    Sri Lanka has been classified with Mali, Syria, Congo, Eritrea Burma and Sudan. So much for our 5 star diplomacy and going towards becoming the Miracle of Asia..

    Banda Tuesday, 19 February 2013 11:46 AM

    Yes, what a strange world is this????? even if military kills in thousands in a day or two who cares!!!!!!!

    baluwoth neluwa Tuesday, 19 February 2013 11:43 AM

    time to think wisly

    ChickenParippu Tuesday, 19 February 2013 05:38 AM

    plenty of negative votes from the US/UK/EU fan boys

    Ram Tuesday, 19 February 2013 05:40 AM

    the resolution does not matter since we are so well strategically tied up with China and Russia. As Dishanthi, US should bring a resolution to them selves for killing civillians in Middle East and Africa in the name of Fight against terrorism aka fight for OIL.

    Yuri Tuesday, 19 February 2013 05:37 PM

    they are not Anti SL, they are anti thugs
