The US has said that implementing a U.N. resolution calling for the investigation of alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka is complicated and needs more consultations to build confidence.

U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor Tom Malinowski said that under the resolution, the government of Sri Lanka will determine the structure and the composition of the court.

He said international participation in a special court had been emphasized because of "an erosion in the confidence" in Sri Lanka's courts over the years.

He added the U.N. resolution respected Sri Lanka's sovereignty.

The U.N. resolution also calls for an inquiry into missing people and progress in reconciliation.
