The Government warned that a premature and interventionist effort to seek justice over the war will put the hard-fought gains at risk.

Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to the United States, Jaliya Wickremesuriya, in a letter published in the New York Times, said that some demands for accountability for what happened during Sri Lanka’s tragic 30-year conflict with terrorism represents a narrow focus on a complex reality.

He says for peace to take hold, one must tread carefully to establish the conditions for successful reconciliation in more areas than justice alone.

Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to the United States also stated that some elements of the Tamil body politic seem intent on seeking international punishment for the government of Sri Lanka, which at the same time is being criticized for not moving fast enough on reconciliation with the Tamils.

He says one needs to look at the totality of the war, including the atrocities committed by the LTTE.
