Prime minister of Britain David Cameron has urged Sri Lanka to make progress on human rights before it hosts the Commonwealth leaders meeting in 2013 to prevent the likelihood of boycotts, AFP reports.

The British premier has said that he pressed President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the Perth CHOGM to show that Colombo did not "have things to hide" following the end of the war against the LTTE.

Mr. Cameron said: "I've been discussing this with the Canadians and I think we all have a similar view, which is we want to see Sri Lanka do more in terms of human rights, we want them to do more in terms of reconciliation after the defeat of the Tamil Tigers."
