Addressing a media briefing held in Colombo today, the Minister said that the sole UN body to impose sanctions against Sri Lanka is its Security Council based in New York, therefore, the Geneva UN Human Rights Commission has no such mandate.

Minister G.L. Peries also described the UN Human Rights Commissioner’s sense of duty tasked on with regard to the draft resolution against Sri Lanka.
