The Sri Lanka delegation to the Human Rights Council briefed the Council yesterday on the progress made in addressing human rights concerns, national security imperatives, as well as reconciliation priorities. 


Sri Lanka’s intervention under Agenda Item 2 of the Council followed the Oral Update provided by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Madam Michelle Bachelet at the opening of the 41st Session of the Human Rights Council on June 24, where a reference was made to Sri Lanka. 


Clarifying the latest situation in the country following the Easter Sunday terrorist attacks and its aftermath, Sri Lanka stated that it has made significant progress in assuring the security of all Sri Lankans and upholding law and order through the implementation of relevant laws and legal processes, among other important measures. 

Sri Lanka further asserted that the national institutions in Sri Lanka continued to make interventions on issues pertaining to violence and extremism, as the government pursued effective measures that have led to the dismantling of terrorist networks in the country.
