Kenya refutes Cameron's threat over SL

Kenyan Foreign Affairs and International Trade Minister Amina Mohamed said Saturday that no country can import stability from outside, and there will be nothing better than homegrown solutions to a country's own problems.

Mohamed made the remarks when she was asked to comment British Prime Minister David Cameron's ultimatum that Britain will push for an international probe into alleged war crimes by the UN Human Rights Council if Sri Lanka does not address human rights issues that include the killing of civilians during the last phase of civil war by March next year.

"Since we are all sovereign countries, I don't think it's proper for anyone to threaten others," she said at a press conference on the sidelines of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), the most importance meeting of the 53- member bloc.

Mohamed said she was impressed by Sri Lanka's fast development, and held an optimistic view about Sri Lanka's future, adding that she believes that the South Asian island country will move forward in a right direction.

Sri Lanka ended a three-decade civil war with Tamil Tiger rebels in 2009 but post-war economic development has been marred by accusations of widespread abuses of human rights.

The CHOGM, which is held every two years, will run through Sunday, and it is the first time an Asian country hosts the summit in 24 years. (Xinhua)

    Hello Madam, first solve the HR issues in your country where you are now living and in Somaila where you were born. Don't make comments against West. Just shut up and help your country with the help of west.
