Sri Lanka's special human right envoy Mahinda Samarasinghe who is currently in Japan is expected to return to Geneva next week to address the resolution put forward by the United States.

Sri Lanka is confident that the country has enough support from the Council's member states to fend off the resolution at the voting to be followed.

Members of the Sri Lankan delegation have already met diplomats from several countries and explained the situation in Sri Lanka to them and received support from China, Russia and Pakistan as well as from African states, the Organization of Islamic Countries and the members of the Non-Aligned Movement.

Sri Lanka has stressed that the majority of the international community supports its efforts and its stand that a functioning domestic mechanism should not be circumvented by interference until its conclusion.

Sri Lanka says the government is taking measures to implement the LLRC recommendations methodically and it needs time and space to work towards reconciliation without interference from the international community.

We spoke to eminent lawyer Gomin Dayasiri about the draft resolution put forward by the United States.
