British Foreign secretary presents a written statement against Sri lanka in Parliament.
British Government reiterated yesterday that it would give its fullest support to the UN Human Rights Commission to hold an international inquiry on Sri Lanka.
Presenting a written statement in parliament, British Foreign Secretary William Hague stated that he would take action to pass a strong resolution to empower the international inquiry.
Hague also said that he would constantly work closely with NGOs and Civil Society movements in order to obtain their support towards his course of action against Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka has achieved some progress in certain spheres such as rehabilitation, social re-integration of child soldiers and removing of landmines.
The British Foreign Secretary also said that although such achievement should not be ignored, Sri Lanka has to go a long way to achieve reconciliation, human rights and accountability.
