President Maithripala Sirisena says Sri Lanka is taking the process to ensure human rights and reconciliation forward step by step.

The President made these remarks during a meeting with Prince Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.

The President pointed out if the government would take hasty actions on those, the extremist groups will take advantage.

He said two years are sufficient for Sri Lanka to complete the subjects adopted by the UNHRC resolution. He invited Prince Hussein to visit Sri Lanka to witness the progress the country has achieved. 

President Sirisena and the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights met yesterday (22) in New York.

The President pointed out this task should be performed with thorough understanding about the internal political and cultural matters and international politics.

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights commended Sri Lanka’s progress in these matters.

He said he will be more satisfied if this journey of Sri Lankan government will be speeded up.

He commended the actions taken to establish the Office of Missing Persons.

He requested to appoint officers for this office from all communities so that every community can accept the actions of the office.

He added the UN Human Rights Council will give its fullest support to Sri Lanka in this regard.
