Sri Lanka received strong cross-regional support in the Human Rights Council from countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America which uniformly welcomed and commended the country’s significant progress achieved in the reconciliation process.

 

Following Sri Lanka’s statement by Ambassador Ravinatha Aryasinha, Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva, Asian, African and Latin American countries specifically commended the progress achieved by the Government of Sri Lanka in rehabilitation, resettlement, resolution of land issues.

 

They also welcomed the additional 53 recommendations of the LLRC accepted by Sri Lanka in July this year within the framework of the National Plan of Action.

 

Additionally, Western countries too joined in welcoming the recent elections held in three provinces including in the Northern Province, and commended the Sri Lankan Government for the cooperation extended during the visit of High Commissioner Navanethem Pillay to Sri Lanka.

 

Countries including Pakistan, the Russian Federation, Cuba, Bolivia, Venezuela and Belarus highlighted the fact that the High Commissioner’s Oral Update was rejected by Sri Lanka as it emanated from a politicised process and mandate rather than an objective assessment of the situation on the ground.
