Secretary of Defence Gotabhaya Rajapaksa states that the United States is trying to impinge on the country's sovereignty.

He said that the accusations of human rights violations levelled by the international community are unfounded and unfair.

Speaking at a gathering at a temple in Maharagama, the defence secretary cited the examples of families of two senior LTTE members -- SP Thamilselvan and Soosai -- who are being cared for by the military.

He added that the government even cared for the parents of former LTTE leader Velupillai Prabakaran.

In an obvious reference to the US-sponsored motion against Sri Lanka at the on going Human Rights sessions in Geneva, he called for unity to face the international threat.
