UK Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt yesterday called on the Sri Lankan government to release publicly the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Committee's (LLRC) report on post conflict issues in Sri Lanka.

The Sri Lankan Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Committee presented their report to President Rakapaksa on November 20.

The Foreign Office Minister said: “Many hope this report will mark a significant milestone in Sri Lanka’s recovery from conflict, and I call on the Government of Sri Lanka to seize this important opportunity to demonstrate its commitment to national reconciliation and accountability. Making the report public at the earliest opportunity is a vital part of this commitment and I look forward to the Government of Sri Lanka setting out the steps it will take in response to the report.”

    Since when did the West want "reconciliation"? They wanted to pro-long war and misery in this country for as long as possible. If they were serious about this nonsense they try to sermon us as mighty superior beings then they would have pushed "accountability" and "reconciliation" back in 2002 when back then they and their propaganda outlets were barking loudly "how the war was over" and "true peace was attained". So why didn´t they, after all the LTTE was around to be tried and be held “accountable”.
