proposed investigations into the killing of civilians during the recent conflict in Sri Lanka will not be on the UN Security Council (UNSC) agenda this month, the Presidency of the Security Council for the month of June has said.
Claude Heller, Mexico’s Permanent Representative to the UN, said that the issue on Sri Lanka was a sensitive issue but was not on the Council's agenda during Mexico's presidency in June.
The Secretary-General could take action, but for the time being, there had been no initiative in the Council, the UN quoted him as saying. (Daily Mirror online)
Probably Sri Lanka's HR violations needs a greater indepth study.

We don't rejoice on tragedies but the flotilla incident and US's strong backing of Israel to avoid a UN inquiry and the rejection of Goldstone report on Gaza about Israel's war crime should make UN think twice about a double standard if it were to press only Sri Lanka. This double standard in the world is long existent, when it come to weaker countries where we fit in, unfortunately!

It will never be on UNSC agenda in future too

UNSC should be busy with Israel for its recent massacre of the aid group which the whole world witnessed. UNSC is just an extended wing of US congress, Sadly Russia and China are members.

Not a good news. UNSC should be vigorously involved in any crime against man kind. After all we are human not animal and therfore criminals shouldn't be tolerated

Yes, but what is China's agenda??
