Friday, 19 April 2013 - 13:17



Sri Lanka’s Permanent Representative to the UN in New York Dr. Palitha Kohona addressing the UN General Assembly has mentioned that the government’s philosophy regarding reconciliation was not to find culprits to punish but rather to undertake a process of healing.


Dr. Kohona stressed that excessive external pressure is being piled on Sri Lanka to conclude the process of investigating allegations to the exclusion of all else even though similar situations in other countries have taken much longer.


Speaking further Dr. Kohona recalled that the government had initiated a domestic mechanism to address all aspects of the conflict, including any alleged violations of international standards.
