The Sri Lanka delegation to the UN General Assembly this week called on the UN Secretariat to utilize the available resources received from Member States in a more effective, impartial and transparent manner.

Sri Lanka’s delegate, Deputy High Commissioner in Canada Sithara Khan made this observation at the 5th Committee of the UN General Assembly on improving the financial situation of the UN, in the presence of the President of the General Assembly Tijjani Muhammad-Bande.

Sri Lanka also urged the Secretariat to fulfill its financial obligations with regards to peace keepers identified to be replaced, at the point of repatriation and added that it was important for the UN Secretariat to ensure a predictive system of payment on all dues concerning peacekeeping operations.

Recalling that Sri Lanka had been a regular contributor to the UN Peacekeeping Operations budget since 1960, she also expressed concern with regards to practices adopted by the Department of Peace Operations recently in relation to Sri Lanka, which was in violation of an MOU with a sovereign country, while challenging the decision of a Head of State.
