UNP: Govt. Need To Explain Agreement With India

Jun 7, 2011 11:24:35 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The UNP today called on the government to clarify to parliament the agreement reached between the governments of Sri Lanka and India during External Affairs Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris’ recent visit to the country.

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake has told a press conference that the government had a duty to inform parliament about the agreement as a high level Indian government delegation is due to arrive in the country as a follow up to the joint statement issued during Peiris’ visit.

Attanayake queried as to why the government after rejecting allegations of human rights violations leveled in the Darusman Report has agreed to India to inquire into such allegations.
