Sri Lanka and the UN Panel of Experts’ report were listed in advance as topics of the Security Council briefing by UN Department of Political Affairs Chief Lynn Pascoe yesterday.

    Thank you Russia. This will not stop the Brits and the Yankees from trying. GOSL should keep up the momentum and thwart any move that will infringe the sovereignity of the nation.

    I dont know why everyone is thanking Russia now, russian foreign policy in south east asia, is completely made at behest of India.

    India is a country with proxy veto powers.

    Russians have no understanding of Human rights. The people in Russia still live in dark ages. They dont get paid but they cant open their mouth. That is Russia for you.
