Britain says that it is imperative for Sri Lanka to obtain International Community’s support in order to consolidate the trust of all communities in the island concerning the Accountability mechanism, which probes into the alleged incidents during war time.

British Minister of State for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Hugo Swire made this statement in British Parliament last week, while expressing his views during a debate over Sri Lanka.

Minister Swire noted this, in response to the views expressed by the British MPs citing the statements made by the Sri Lankan President and Prime Minister, that they would not deploy foreign Judges for the Internal investigations.

Minister Hugo Swire further stressed that it is imperative for Sri Lanka to obtain the support of international community to sustain the mechanism of accountability with integrity, on both local and international platforms.

He further noted that Sri Lankan government has been informed of the matter, in addition to conveying the message via the UN Human Rights commissioner.

British Foreign Minister further commended Sri Lankan government for co-hosting the UN Human rights Commission’s resolution and reiterated that his government is ready to extend its support for the implementation of the resolution in its entirety.
