UN Secretary General says that lessons learnt from Sri Lanka
UN Secretary General Ban ki-moon said that an action plan has been made on the findings of the civil war in Sri Lanka which would prevent any similar conflict in any other country.
The UN Secretary General was speaking at the year-end media briefing held at the UN Headquarters in New York on Monday.
Referring to the ‘Rights Up Front Action Plan’ which he appointed to address the situation in Sri Lanka, Ban ki-moon said that the UN Action plan does not aim at any particular country or a case but will be used for all countries, all cases and all situations.
He also said that he had strongly recommended the particular Action plan and therefore sent it to the member states to be used as a guideline in protecting human rights, and preventing any imminent rights violations.
