Having emerged from a three-decade-long terrorist conflict less than four years ago, Sri Lanka now needs to up its game and make up for lost opportunities and develop rapidly to catch up with the rest of the world.

Mr. President, the Resolution before the Council today is premised upon Resolution 19/2 of 2012 which was not recognised by Sri Lanka. Despite our dissociation with that initiative, I must point out the salient features of that Resolution which called for Sri Lanka to implement the recommendations of its domestic mechanism, the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) and to formulate an action plan for implementation.
Mr. President, allow me to make a few remarks on the resolution under discussion ‘Promoting Reconciliation and Accountability in Sri Lanka’.
India believes that the report of the LLRC and its findings and recommendation provides a window of opportunity to forge a consensual way forward towards a lasting political settlement through genuine national reconciliation and the full enjoyment of human rights by all its citizens.
Geneva: The United States Ambassador to the Permanent Mission of the US to the UN in Geneva says the resolution adopted Thursday by the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on the human rights situation, reconciliation and accountability in Sri Lanka is a message sent by the international community for Sri Lanka to take “meaningful steps toward truth and accountability”.
