Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe met with members of the Buddhist clergy and the Sri Lankan security forces to discuss a United Nations Human Rights Council resolution on prosecuting violations of international humanitarian law on the island.
Government minister Harsha de Silva tweeted a photograph from the meeting on Saturday, stating that the prime minister met with Buddhist monks, as well as with Sri Lankan civil society members.
Mr De Silva further tweeted on Monday that the prime minister had met “all 2 star and above officers of the military and police” to discuss the resolution.
Since the resolution has been tabled at the council last week, the prime minister has rejected the notion of foreign judges investigating crimes committed on the island.
