President Maithripala Sirisena addressing the 70th United Nations General Assembly in New York said Sri Lanka's new vision for the country involves achieving the twin objectives of sustainable development and reconciliation.

The President said Sri Lanka's social and human development approach is founded on pluralism, reconciliation and sustainable development.

Noting that within the first six months of his Presidency, his government introduced essential amendments to the Constitution in order to strengthen democracy in Sri Lanka, the President said the new government under his leadership has already taken several steps to introduce and operationalize the reforms required.

He said the government intends to implement a new program and plan of action to advance human rights in Sri Lanka.

President Sirisena stressed that the edifice of sustainable development should therefore be built upon the foundation of self-discipline and equity.

The speech delivered by President yesterday (30th) at the 70th United Nations General Assembly.
