Britain disagrees with the Non Aligned Movement (NAM) that UN Secretary General Ban ki-moon is not within his right to set up a group of experts who will advise him on taking forward his concerns on Sri Lanka.

UK’s Permanent Representative to the UN Mark Lyall Grant says the Secretary-General does have a mandate through the UN charter to uphold human rights and humanitarian international law, and therefore he is entirely within his rights to set up the group of experts.

“We would disagree with the Non-Aligned Movement, who are arguing that he is acting beyond his mandate,” Inner City Press quoted Mark Lyall Grant as saying.

Ambassador Lyall Grant also noted that Britain has made it very clear that they want to see an end to impunity in Sri Lanka and see allegations of war crimes, human rights violations and human rights abuses thoroughly investigated.

    They are the architects of this issue. We on't want their point of view. It is always against us. These guys think we are still under them. When we don't listen to them they try to create problems.

    UK is one of the leading architects of the problem. They failed to support out fight against LTTE and now feel jealous that we could do it without them.

    We will fight the next battle without the bankrupt USA and UK. It is they who created more than half of world's problems including the problems in middle east.

    Now that they have no money, they can borrow some from LTTE.

    The history will recod them as villains of the 20th Century. They are still living in the 29th century.

    if representatives are from corrupted nations, their opinion is also corrupted. Therefore, UK's opinion is right on right time.
