Referring to the “Report of the Secretary General’s Internal Review Panel on UN action in Sri Lanka” or the “Petrie Report”, the Ministry of External Affairs has stated that certain issues with regard to allegations directed at the Government of Sri Lanka are regrettably unsubstantiated, erroneous and replete with conjecture and bias.

It notes that the Report, which is critical of the Member States, seems to forget that the United Nations is an inter-governmental organization whose members are equal in terms of sovereignty and dignity.

The Ministry of External affairs also notes that the author of the report should act within their given mandate and the Charter, and be equal and fair in their dealings with all Member States.
