The External Affairs Ministry stated that the country has no need at all to permit UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay or any other faction to come to this country and hold an international inquiry.

The Ministry also stated that there is no such international tradition in holding such investigations.

Views were expressed in international arena about holding an international inquiry on Sri Lanka after an American backed Anti Sri Lankan resolution was passed in UN Human Rights Commission and its Commissioner Navi Pillay presented a report on Sri Lanka.

Earlier External Affairs Minister G.L. Peries said that nobody has asked permission to come here for such an inquiry.

He also said that if any party asks such permission, it is upto the government to grant visa or deny such party or parties visa.

Meanwhile any party who wish to hold an international investigation on a country should obtain the UN Security Council endorsement.

The External Affairs Ministry also said that different factions have no legitimacy to hold international inquiries on countries in order to please their whims and fancies.
