The UK parliament has asked the Prime Minister, David Cameron to justify his government's arms sales to Sri Lanka despite his criticism of the island nation's human rights record.

 

Chairman of the Committees on Arms Export Controls John Stanley has said the UK government has a "questionable" approach on arms exports to Sri Lanka.

 

According to the Chairman, the UK has exported 8 million Pounds worth weapons to Sri Lanka last year and the claim all that weapon sales were used to fight piracy is not credible.

 

The arms exports in question have been approved for sales to private maritime security companies engaged in commercial anti-piracy operations in the region.
