Indian stand on Geneva resolution has adverse reactions:Gotabaya
Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa today said that the announcement of the Indian position regarding the US backed resolution at the UN Human Rights council in Geneva against Sri Lanka is having an adverse reaction.
He said that before the Indian position was made public Sri Lanka was on an equal position, but since then some countries have turned ‘neutral’ and may abstain at the vote on the resolution.
The Defence Secretary met with Publishers and management of newspapers and radio stations and Editors and news directors.
Mr Rajapaksa said despite Sri Lanka making all efforts to keep the international community informed about the post-war situation some of the countries were having their own opinion due to internal political situations and not basing the decisions on the ground realities in Sri Lanka.
