Sri Lanka's foreign minister on Sunday condemned a 'preposterous' United Nations (UN)-commissioned report alleging war crimes in his country, revealing he stopped Canada raising it at a Commonwealth meeting.

Foreign Minister G.L. Peiris also confirmed Sri Lanka will host the next Commonwealth leaders' meeting in 2013, saying that none of the 54-nation bloc raised the prospect of moving it during this year's summit in Perth.

'There was no attempt whatsoever to revisit the issue relating to the venue,' he told reporters at the conclusion of the Perth meeting.
Ahead of Perth, Canadian premier Stephen Harper had raised concerns about Sri Lanka hosting the summit due to a UN panel's allegations that the military massacred civilians in 2009 in the final stages of the Tamil rebellion. (AFP)

    Condemming and rejecting won't solve the problem instead face it and answer it.
