The United States today said that Sri Lanka continues to fall short in implementing even the recommendations of its own Lessons Learned and Reconciliation Commission, in addressing the underlying sources of its longstanding ethnic conflict.
 
Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs Esther Brimmer said at the 22nd session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva that the United States will introduce another resolution at this session to ensure that the international community continues to monitor progress, and to again offer assistance on outstanding reconciliation and accountability issues.
 
“The Council’s work remains unfinished so long as Sri Lanka continues to fall short in implementing even the recommendations of its own Lessons Learned and Reconciliation Commission, or in addressing the underlying sources of its longstanding ethnic conflict. Last year’s HRC resolution encouraged brave civil society groups on the ground to continue their efforts, and the United States will introduce another resolution at this session to ensure that the international community continues to monitor progress, and to again offer assistance on outstanding reconciliation and accountability issues. The United States hopes this resolution will be a cooperative effort with the Sri Lankan government,” she said.
 
Meanwhile commenting on the Israel issue, she said that the Council’s work remains unfinished so long as it continues to unfairly single out Israel, the only country with a stand-alone agenda item. 
 
“Until this Council ceases to subject Israel to an unfair and unacceptable bias, its unprincipled and unjust approach will continue to tarnish the reputation of this body, while doing nothing to support progress toward the peace among Israelis and Palestinians that we all desire so deeply,” she said.

    What the world needs is a probe into the covert activities and mass wholesale murders committed by the US all over the world.
    After the election of Obama it regained some of the lost prestige.

    we in SL also feel the same with this Govt via DM Android App

    Chryshan K. Wednesday, 27 February 2013 02:44 AM

    We need UN peacekeepers here to maintain law and order. The present war declared by Govt thugs, terror ministers and family company is the worst war we ever experienced.

    Be fair...... Wednesday, 27 February 2013 02:32 AM

    UN is biased, thats it. During the war howcome all these guys who are shouting now didnt bother about the carnage in Sri Lanka. as "SRI LANKANS" we should try and unite. Though most of us doesnt havent any confidence in this govt, nor in its opposition......I wish that we can come together as "SRI LANKANS"

    but US has teeth (sharp teeth)!

    manna Wednesday, 27 February 2013 02:22 AM

    no ,it is high time to send internationals investigators

    lionheart Wednesday, 27 February 2013 02:19 AM

    No worries. UN is only a company that does nothing other than pay lavish salaries to relics like Navi Pillai and drink coffee etc.. SL should go ahead with it's own development plans as we are 30 years behind thanks to the murderer Prabhakaran and all who aided him including big bully India. Let them pass not one resolution but two. Who cares.

    Banda Tuesday, 26 February 2013 05:13 PM

    It's high time to send the UN peace keepers

    Ranjit Wednesday, 27 February 2013 01:50 AM

    US will never be satisfied unless we dissociate with their enemies.

    Toothless UN is a joke.
    They cannot help anyone. They just waste their time and money passing resolutions that has no effect on anyone.

    Ranil Tuesday, 26 February 2013 07:24 PM

    Few of your boot licking countries might not be satisfied with gosl, but the entire world dislike the united states for all the attrocities you have commited in the last 250 years of your pitty existance
