The government on Tuesday briefed diplomats on the implementation of recommendations of a post war commission that looked into the root causes of the country’s civil war.
External Affairs minister G.L. Peiris and secretary to the president Lalith Weeratunga has met Colombo's diplomatic community for a 'comprehensive briefing' on the work carried out to implement the proposals of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC), the ministry of external affairs releasing a statement said.
Sri Lanka's LLRC has come up with a number of proposals to increase the liberties of all citizens, justice and rule of law, some of which may involve deep rooted changes to the structure of the state.
Weeratunga told reporters last Thursday that some of the complex recommendations like land and police powers needed a political consideration but there were many other recommendations that could be easily implemented.
"The detailed matrix, including priorities, the institutions entrusted with responsibility, key performance indicators and time frames, was explained to the diplomatic community," the statement said.
Sri Lanka faces a universal periodic review at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva this November where the island's human rights record and good governance will be evaluated.
