Sri Lanka says will implement LLRC recommendations by the deadline
Mar 24, Colombo: The Sri Lankan government has said that it expects to meet the deadline set by the United Nations resolution to implement the remaining recommendations made by the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC).
Secretary of the External Affairs Ministry Karunatilaka Amunugama has told media that most of the recommendations have already been implemented and the rest will be implemented by March 2014.
The United States sponsored resolution, adopted by the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva on March 21, requests the Office of the High Commissioner to present an oral update to the Human Rights Council's 24th session scheduled to be held in September 9-27, 2013. A comprehensive report followed by a discussion on the implementation of the present resolution is required to be presented to the Council at its 25th session in March 2014.
The External Affairs Ministry Secretary has however stressed that the government's decision to implement the remaining recommendation by March 2014 timeline is not due to any pressure brought on by the adoption of the resolution.
The Sri Lankan government has explained to the Council that the country has made an impressive progress in many fronts within a short period of time since the end of the war against LTTE terrorism in 2009.
The government has said that although a considerable progress has made in implementing most of the LLRC recommendations, it needs the time and space as well as resources to implement all the constructive recommendations.
However, the sponsor of the UN resolution, the U.S. while welcoming and acknowledging important progress that has been made in certain areas in Sri Lanka, says much has to be done.
The resolution while welcoming and acknowledging the progress made by the Government of Sri Lanka in rebuilding infrastructure, demining, and resettling the majority of internally displaced persons, noted that considerable work lies ahead in the areas of justice, reconciliation and the resumption of livelihoods.
The United States Ambassador to the Permanent Mission of U.S. to UN in Geneva Eileen Donahoe said the resolution was put forward out of genuine concern about the lack of follow-through on the promises by the Government of Sri Lanka to carry out a credible form of domestic accountability.
The U.S. says it will consider an international effort rather than a Sri Lankan-led effort if Sri Lanka is not forthcoming to implement the actions decreed by the resolution.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of External Affairs has said that the Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris would make a special statement with regard to the statements made by the U.S. and other western countries after the resolution on Sri Lanka was approved at the UNHRC.
