Representative of Sri Lanka to the UN, former Attorney General Mohan Peiris said Sri Lanka's Human Rights record has been described by member countries of the UN as having reached an "ideal" position to be identified with international Rights standards,.

He said only a very few countries have reached this level in terms of Human Rights development in recent times.

Mohan Peiris said during meetings held on the sidelines of the recently concluded 21st United Nations Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva, Western countries praised Sri Lanka's Human Rights performance.

He said it is likely that UN Human Rights High Commissioner Navaneethan Pillay will pay her promised visit to Sri Lanka after Sri Lanka has been reviewed at the UPR in November.
