Sri Lankan president Maithripala Sirisena assured an all-party meeting on Tuesday that he would ensure the “the dignity of the country is safeguarded” in regard to action on a UN Human Rights Council resolution on accountability for mass atrocities.
In the second all-party meeting to discuss the resolution passed earlier this year, the Sri Lankan president reassured the island’s political parties that his government would ensure “every action in relevant to Geneva Proposals will be taken in accordance with the Constitution of Sri Lanka”.
He added that another committee was going to be formed in order to “take ideas” on the implementation of the resolution.
His comments come following an earlier all-party meeting, where political parties submitted twelve proposals to the government.
According to Mr Sirisena’s official website, he “stated that the government will sensitively consider these proposals” and that “these issues should be solved in a manner that the dignity of the country is safeguarded”.
