The United Nations Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate Jean-Paul Laborde is scheduled to arrive in the country today for a 3 day official visit.

As requested by the Security Council Counter-Terrorism Committee (CTC), the visit has three main objectives.

The objectives include, to assess Sri Lanka’s implementation of the provisions of Security Council resolution including the ratification and implementation of international instruments against terrorism as well as international cooperation in these matters, and to make relevant recommendations concerning steps that Sri Lanka should take in this regard; to recommend areas in which Sri Lanka would eventually benefit from receiving technical assistance.

The official mission to Sri Lanka, which will stress the importance of a comprehensive approach to countering terrorism in accordance with the principles of the rule of law including human rights, as requested by the Security Council, will be undertaken through engagement with the Government and include a visit to Jaffna.

The delegation will emphasize that terrorism will be defeated not only by military and law enforcement measures or judiciary decisions, but will also require constructive dialogue with communities.
