Megapolis and Western Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka told the Cabinet yesterday that the government should launch diplomatic efforts to withdraw its co-sponsorship of the UNHRC resolution on Sri Lanka.

He said the government should also make every effort to replace the current resolution.

The minister said this when the Cabinet discussed the Bill to set up the National Truth Commission and pointed out that the government had taken several steps as far as reconciliation was concerned.

He cited the Office of Missing Persons, the Office for Reparation, and various commissions appointed during the former rule as steps taken in this direction.

However, the minister said there was no reciprocity from the other side. He said some countries such as Britain were lenient towards the LTTE activists because of the present approach by the government. (Kelum Bandara)

    This is what GL and the JO have been saying from the beginning. Co sponsoring the resolution was insane. Mangala and Ranil must be used to bending over. Big mistake

    Uncle, you are part of the government. You have spent 3 1/2 years doing nothing. Just big talk. You too are suffering from what I call the "Sirisena Syndrome" For me you are another candidate for the bin at the next elections.

    To fulfill this resolution would be the only possibility to bring peace to the country and the different ethnic communities

    You cannot have every thing to fall in line to your wishes. Honour the resolution to keep your head high.

    We all know that you all have appointed many commissions and taken several steps but the tragedy is we see only the stpes but no action has taken. It s the action that matters not the steps and never ending commissions.
