US diplomats say they will bring a fresh resolution to the UN Human Rights Council at the March 2013 sessions of the UNHRC.

Deputy Assistant Secretary of State James Moore said the resolution will be forwarded in a bid to force Sri Lanka to deliver on promises to probe various allegations.

However, Moore said The US recognized Sri Lanka had made "some progress" since the previous US-led censure of Sri Lanka at the March 2012 UNHRC sessions in Geneva, but Washington believed more needed to be done.

However at a media briefing held in Colombo recently Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe said he was prepared to brief the UNHRC about the progress Sri Lanka has achieved at the UNHRC meeting scheduled to be held in March.
