US Secretary of State John Kerry told the ongoing session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva that an opportunity has dawned for Sri Lanka to achieve a real change.

He said that the UN Human Rights Council has taken steps to encourage Sri Lankan leaders to fulfill their promises and pledges made to the people.

The US Secretary of State reiterated that the UN Human Rights Council procedure cannot be ignored in that process.

He expressed these views commonly for Sri Lankan and Myanmar during his speech at the inauguration of the 28th session of the Human Rights Council today.
