India making a statement at the 24th session of the Human Rights Council, said that it encourages the UN Human Rights Commissioner to “continue to provide advice and technical assistance to Sri Lanka in accordance with” the Council’s resolutions.

The statement was made in reference to the ‘oral update by the High Commissioner for Human Rights on promoting reconciliation and accountability in Sri Lanka’.

Earlier two resolutions were passed against Sri Lanka calling for a variety of actions that the Sri Lankan government needed to undertake to address the human rights concerns raised, and the High Commissioner yesterday “hinted” at the possibility of International Intervention if the government fails to conduct a credible investigation into allegations of human rights abuses.

“We take note that the High Commissioner had welcomed the government’s acceptance of 53 additional LLRC recommendations and had highlighted the need for implementation of the remaining recommendations contained in the LLRC report for concrete improvement in Human Rights. Accordingly, we encourage the High Commissioner to continue to provide advice and technical assistance to Sri Lanka in accordance with UNHRC resolutions,” the statement read.

The seven point statement, which was read while the Supreme Court delivered a landmark judgment, which in effect negated the land powers vested in the Provincial Council through the 13th amendment, said that India looked forward to the full implementation” of the 13th amendment “and beyond it”.

    This statement made just before the dinner with obama

    srinath.gunaratne Friday, 27 September 2013 03:51 PM

    We should not support Indians working in Sri Lanka as senior managers in Multinationals. They take the jobs of Sri Lankans in Sri Lanka as well. Now tell us what to do.They are worst managers. Giving all businesses to Indian companies and bringing more and more Indians. They harass Sri Lankan girls working as well. We wait like stupids without protecting our countrymen. Sinhala, Tamil or Muslim. This is our country.

    Kusuma check your knowledge of history, except for the Indigenous (Vedda) people, almost all of our ancestors came from India.

    Of course, for Russia and China their economy is much important than SL so, they will sure give their preference to their big trade allies like US, Europe than SL.

    Certainly Lord Buddha will say that too is wrong. Even allowing Pakistan aircrafts to refuel in Colombo during the Indo-Pakistan war over Bangladesh is also wrong. However if we keep doing wrongs bcos others do it, where is our ethics and principles?

    TooToo Friday, 27 September 2013 07:04 AM

    Uttering a few lines from Buddhism after a speech has no effect after killing thousands and continue to do do. Buddhism does not have a invisible magic hand. He has to look elsewhere for the invisible hand.

    Nothing to worry about. This concern is only until the elections in India are over.

    Suq Madique Friday, 27 September 2013 06:41 AM

    Sorry match over!

    kumar Friday, 27 September 2013 06:41 AM

    Not only India even China and Russia will turn against Sri Lanka one day.

    Suq Madique Friday, 27 September 2013 06:39 AM

    What will Lord Buddha say about India supporting the Tigers who killed innocent people??

    Bushel Perera Friday, 27 September 2013 02:06 AM

    Dan mokadda karanne....? Rusiyawa innewane...

    Ukussa Friday, 27 September 2013 04:41 AM

    We have to understand how the central government of India behaves in front of a election. But our politicians should have the back bone to handle it in a respected way to our Sri lankan nation. What Rohana Wijeweera predicted several years ago perhaps be proved true soon.

    lal Friday, 27 September 2013 04:14 AM

    This is very serious.We must take imediet actions based on LLRC

    Exorcistst Friday, 27 September 2013 04:09 AM

    So the coming colours are not good in spite of the infrastructure development underway borrowing large scale of loans at high interest. Hope the rulers will not bring burden to the citizens of this country by dumping their head into the sands of personal ego??

    fazlyfazlyzly Friday, 27 September 2013 04:02 AM

    Indian Government is the biggest puppet of the US,European and the Communist blocks , they dance to any tune to heat the party up!

    TooToo Friday, 27 September 2013 03:47 AM

    All these events unfolded after the very sighted speech made by MR and the UN. He mentioned the killing in Kenya and nothing was mention about the mass killing in Syria. He exposed himself very crudely.

    TooToo Friday, 27 September 2013 03:45 AM

    To turn on the heat, a switch is needed. We have a lot of switches that can be turned on Sri Lanka.

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 27 September 2013 03:23 AM

    Well done India. Lord buddha will be proud of you for directing the correct path that criminal regimes such as that in Sri Lanka has taken.

    Charlie Willson Friday, 27 September 2013 03:22 AM

    Is Sri Lanka a sovereign state or the state belongs to Indian Union ?So much mingle on internal affairs of country,where they do not like! Will they allow others to mingle into their internal affairs?If so,there want be problem and precedence are not so.

    Srilankan Friday, 27 September 2013 03:08 AM

    Our most closest and big brother,India,

    One day, UNHRC will put forward a similar report to investigate the Human Right situation in Indu Kashmir. And then you will understood the reality.

    It’s really sad that, this current Congress led Indian Gvt is continuously run in stupidity.

    You will pretty soon loss the one and only ever trusted member state in the region and finally, one day will understand that your surrounded by enemies, then your too late.

    ram Friday, 27 September 2013 03:03 AM

    now the game is starting.

    Jagath Leanage Friday, 27 September 2013 02:56 AM

    Yesterday's judgement on land powers will antagonize India. Because Jaffna, Mulaitivu,Kilinochchi, Vavunia and Mannar districts are won by TNA. So now TNA will want those powers to develop those areas by the fund they are allocated.

    Ara Friday, 27 September 2013 02:53 AM

    India always does that..

    we should ban all the imports from India

    Kusuma Friday, 27 September 2013 02:53 AM

    Indian's are the most selfish people in the World. Having known very well that all these problems because of their own people who had come to Sri Lanka and making unreasonable demands still indirectly backing them to destabilize Sri Lanka by hook or by crook!!!

    Suq Madique Friday, 27 September 2013 02:52 AM

    The countries that are so obsessed with our alleged HR abuses should first clean the blood off their hands.
