Amnesty International can't dictate terms to US, says Sri Lanka's Foreign Minister

May 28, 2010 7:40:42 PM- defence.lk
Sri Lanka Foreign Minister Gamini Peiris, who is visiting Washington for meetings with senior Obama Administration officials and US lawmakers, has slammed the International Crisis Group, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and other such groups--that have accused Sri Lanka of war crimes during its conflict with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam and called for an international tribunal to investigate these alleged rights violations--saying these groups don't constitute the "international community," and hence don't have the moral authority "to tell us what to do."
