Sri Lanka has slammed the US move to introduce a fresh UN resolution against the country over its alleged war crimes committed during the civil war.
Minister of External Affairs Professor G L Peiris question as to whether UN resolutions are the way to treat Sri Lanka, a country that is trying to find its own feet.
Minister Peiris added Sri Lanka was making steady progress in its post conflict phase at the end of a 30 year separatist campaign.
Earlier, a similar resolution adopted last year was backed by India.
Peiris was commenting while making introductory remarks at a public lecture delivered by the British foreign office junior minister Alistair Burt here.
