UN Human Rights Council today adopted a resolution, which Promoted reconciliation, accountability and human rights in Sri Lanka, without a vote granting two years to fulfill recommendations of the 2015 resolution.

Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Dr. Harsha De Silva told Daily Mirror that the resolution was purely to extend the time for 2015 resolution (30/1) and added that no amendment had been made to it.

He said 47 nations had come forward to cosponsor the resolution this time whereas only 11 countries cosponsored it in 2015.

    The increase of acceptance from 11 YES to 47 within two years , by the rest of the world , is certainly a victory for the country !!!

    Most people from the North are in Canada, UK, Norway etc - the rest happily living in apartments in Colombo and other parts of the country - hardly any tamils in the north! Additionally, what about the child soldiers, school children, monks and other civilians killed by their psychotic leader and his bandits - get evidence from their relatives!

    Postponing is not going to make the problem go away,we must collect enough evidence and show that killings and gang rape by the IPKF against the Tamil civilians was the most horrendous WAR CRIMES committed in Sri Lanka.

    Good. Gives more time to heal the wounds. In the meantime please get going with the investigations on any war crimes by all parties ie government soldiers, tigers, IPKF etc. Hope for some justice and peace for all at some stage. This has to end and closed sooner than later for the sake of the country.
