The United Nations General Assembly elected the Permanent Representative of Sri Lanka, Ambassador Dr. Palitha Kohona, as Chair of the Sixth Committee, the top legal body of the General Assembly, for its 68th Session.

Previously he had been overwhelmingly endorsed for the position by the Asia - Pacific Group.

Dr. Kohona is the first Sri Lankan to be elected to chair the Sixth Committee of the General Assembly.

From 1995 to 2005 he was the Head of the UN Treaty Section which discharges the depository function of the UN Secretary-General and is responsible for treaties under Article 102 of the Charter.

    Very few know about the UN and Ceylon. The man who put Sri-Lanka in the UN map was Sir Senerath Gunawardena. He was appointed by the UN to be the Seceretary of reporting to UN on the Hungarian issue.Then He was the Chairman of the Special Committe appointed by the UN on Viatnam after the War. Diplomats then were so recogonized that they held highest positions in the UN, He would have been the SECretary General in the UN befoire U Thant, if SWRD sponsored him for the post but he did not. Uthant was his under study then. People who are unaware of the history of Ceylon & the UN should learn first

    Saman,
    I do not know with intention or meaning you are calling for diaspora. The meaning of diaspora is
    di·as·po·ra
    /dīˈaspərə/
    Noun
    Jews living outside Israel.
    The dispersion of the Jews beyond Israel. The main diaspora began in the 8th–6th centuries bc, and even before the sack of Jerusalem...

    So it could mean all Sri Lankans living outside of Sri Lanka.

    Well Done Sir, Congratulations! Whatever happens in Sri Lanka you are doing your duty well. We Sri Lankans are really proud of you.
