Sep 27, 2011 10:41:48 AM - itnnews.lk

France has said that Sri Lanka’s programme of re-introducing child soldiers into regular society was an example to other countries.France’s Ambassador for Human Rights Francois Zimeray said that Sri Lanka had made real progress in reintroducing former child soldiers into regular society.

Francois Zimeray made this reference at a meeting at the United Nations on the sidelines of the General Assembly, which focused on follow-up to a 2007 Paris conference on ways to end the use of child soldiers. He pointed out that many countries in the world had not made much progress in the implementation of such projects. The French Ambassador said that under such circumstances the programme mooted by the Sri Lanka Government to rehabilitate LTTE cadres had reached the final phase.
