Sri Lanka has expressed disappointment over the inclusion of Human Rights, accountability and reconciliation issues in Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon's report on conflict-related sexual violence submitted to the UN Security Council. 
 
Sri Lanka yesterday informed the UNSC that it was concerned that Ban had mentioned the recent UN Human Rights Council (HRC) resolution in the report. 
 
The government said: "We observe that this year's Report of the UNSG on conflict-related sexual violence contains references to the HRC (Human Rights Council) resolution on Sri Lanka, accountability, and a comprehensive truth and reconciliation commission. 
 
"We are disappointed that such issues which have no relevance to this issue, have been dragged into this report." 
 
The government stated that the contents of the HRC resolution have been rejected and disputed by Sri Lanka. 
 
"The government will continue to take all necessary measures to heal the wounds of conflict on its own, as the internationalisation of the reconciliation process, would only result in stymying the progress, particularly since it is a domestically developed process". 
 
Sri Lanka charges that certain organisations are involved in propagating false reports of sexual violence against the government troops. 
 
Britain's Channel 4 has been producing a series of documentaries on alleged excesses by the government troops in their battle against the LTTE. Sri Lanka has dismissed them as fabrications.(PTI)

    Banki Moon lost his credibility as SG of UN long time back. He is a lapdog of US and other western countries. He was put their to dance to the music of his political masters. Day by day he is getting loony. via DM iPad app

    According to you, MR is the best for this position, right?

    Sri Lanka cannot justify itself against these accusations. Some powerful, immoral criminals have brought our country down C level.

    RAISING OBJECTIONS ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH. SHOW IMPROVEMENTS TO THE WORLD

    why the truth is bitter for Lankans? Govt is accountable for even the religious tensions now that prevails in the country.

    I totally agree that anyone who committed war crimes and HR Violations must be punished. But definitely not ONLY Sri Lanka. Banki Moon must know how things happened in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya etc. Bring those too along with Sri Lanka. If not Banki must give reason for not including US, UK and their allies.

    No need to speak about sexual violence taken place during the war. Look at south. There's high number of domestic violence against women and children. Police is not taking any action other than returning the victim home saying the police cannot interfere family matters. Laws are not updated for years. It takes many years to get the justice delivered. And most of the accused run scot-free. The whole justice system is a joke. There are many women now requesting refugee status abroad having being victims to domestic violence.

    Yes. Better than from any other regime. Only anti-Lankans can't live with us.

    The fellow has to do as he is told by US, Uk or face cuts in funding for UN as Canada has done to Commonwealth. Who then will pay for lavish cocktail parties, air tavel and super luxury hotel accommodation? Good life comes before credibility for UNSG it seems!

    Lokka Saturday, 26 April 2014 12:45 PM

    No point talking to this man Moon. He is a satellite of the worst war criminal in the world, US. UN is only an oppressive tool of the Western powers.
