Minister Samarsingha briefs Latin American Regional Group of Council Members and observer countries.
Mahinda Samarasinghe, Minister of Plantation Industries and Special Envoy of the President on Human Rights, briefed the Latin American Regional Group of Council Members and observer countries on the current status of the post armed conflict reconciliation and reconstruction initiatives of the Government of Sri Lanka.
Minister said In view of the impressive progress achieved by Sri Lanka in several spheres of activity, the appropriateness of current initiatives by some countries to propose international intervention by way of inquiry mechanisms is questionable.
The Minister explained to the assembled heads of mission during the meeting that such a measure was both intrusive and unnecessary.
